Say No to the $858 billion War Budget!

New Hampshire Congressional Delegation

Dear Friends,

On December 6th, Congress finished penning an outrageous $858 billion military budget for fiscal year 2023. We cannot afford to be spending our tax money on death and destruction! Especially not when there is so much need at home.

This is a 10% increase over FY2022 which should be spent on domestic needs such as health care, affordable housing, a robust response to the COVID-19 pandemic, child care, and addressing the climate crisis. Just to name a few.

Increasing the military budget only benefits the weapons contractors, and oil companies. It will definitely not make us safer, or end the war in Ukraine. It will, however, continue to raise the specter of "Great Power Competition" with Russia and China, and put millions of innocent people at risk.

Will you send a letter to your representatives to demand they speak out against Biden's military spending budget?

I am writing to you today to express my concern about the military spending budget that President Biden recently announced.

There is so much need domestically and spending this money on the military will only exacerbate the deficit. Our schools are under funded, our bridges and roads are falling apart, we are years behind on funding a just transition to renewable energy, and we just passed the threshold of 1 million deaths from COVID- 19.

As of 2020, the U.S. was spending more money on the military than the next nine countries combined, and it has only increased since then. We cannot continue to neglect public spending in lieu of the military.

I am asking that you speak out against the FY2023 National Defense Authorization Act.
