Sign the petition to Congress: Say NO to a nearly $1,000,000,000,000 Pentagon budget

Republicans cut relief for the poor, for loan debt forgiveness, and for the working class in the debt ceiling deal, saying we couldn't afford it. Yet, at the same time, they increased the Pentagon budget to $886 billion without addressing major concerns like price gouging by military contractors.

To truly invest in our future, we must prioritize: providing affordable healthcare, relieving student debt, creating good-paying jobs, and tackling the ever-growing climate crisis.

The Pentagon budget has grown at an astronomically unsustainable rate year after year, with no end in sight. Every year Congress and the President add more money to the Pentagon budget for outdated ships, malfunctioning planes, dangerous nuclear weapons, and giveaways to corrupt contractors at the expense of communities across the country.

Meanwhile, Republicans continue to attack our social and human needs programs including major cuts to Social Security and school lunches.

It’s time for Congress to prioritize the needs of the people. That means investing in programs that will truly make our country stronger and more equitable while cutting the bloated Pentagon budget.

Sign if you agree: Bloated military spending is not the answer. We must put our tax dollars to help working Americans at home.
