A Historic Opportunity to Cut Military Spending by a Trillion
The recent Washington agreement to raise the debt ceiling in exchange for budget cuts has created a historic opportunity for deep cuts in projected military spending--cuts that would help prevent future wars. By Thanksgiving, a joint House-Senate committee is supposed to recommend $1.5 trillion in cuts in projected spending over 10 years. Most of these cuts can come from the projected military budget.
Urge the President and your representatives in Congress to put the projected military budget first in line for cuts.
