A Great Week to Cut the Pentagon Budget and End the War!
The 2013 "Defense" Appropriations Bill is expected to be voted on in the House this week. It would spend $519 billion for the "non-war" Pentagon budget plus $88.4 billion more on the war in Afghanistan. The bill would allocate 57% of all federal discretionary spending to the military, at a time when some want to cut spending on food stamps, claiming there is not enough money.
Members will be introducing amendments to cut the military budget, to end the war in Afghanistan, and to draw down troops in Europe. Urge your Representative to support these amendments by using the form below.
