Health care, NOT Warfare: Cut Military Budget & Invest in America!

Healthcare NOT Warfare!

February 24, 2009.

Dear fellow Americans,

Hope you had the chance to read the open letter I penned to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid. It details specific wasteful military programs that could be cut with no security risk, while providing us with the needed revenue to meet our domestic economic challenges.

Tell the president, your senators, and your representative to cut the military budget and invest in rebuilding America. Click here.

Military spending almost doubled during the Bush/Cheney years, which contributed mightily to the bad economic situation in which we now find ourselves. On Tuesday, February 24, Rep. Barney Frank will hold a briefing and discussion on his proposal for a 25% cut in the military budget. His hope is to have a wide-ranging discussion. If you can attend, bring your ideas, questions, and suggestions.

Barney Frank Briefing
Tuesday, February 24 at 10:00 a.m.
Rayburn Office Building, Room 2129

For a year, our Healthcare NOT Warfare campaign has asked Congress to stop wasteful military spending to fund guaranteed healthcare for all and other important domestic needs. Now that the economy is in shambles, and more troops are being sent to Afghanistan, the Healthcare NOT Warfare campaign is more relevant than ever, and our collective action is needed now more than ever.

If you want healthcare, not warfare and windmills, not weapons, please take action today.
