Our country is at risk of defaulting on our loans for the very first time. Congress and the President are deep in negotiations to tackle the federal deficit.
Tea Party compliant Republicans are taking this as an opportunity to cut desperately needed domestic programs that are keeping American families afloat in the economic crisis, such as Social Security and Medicare.
Meanwhile, Congress is increasing the Pentagon budget, already the largest recipient of federal funds – by $17 billion.
Its time our government stopped ignoring what we want. Sign our petition to keep the Pentagon from eating away programs needed at home.
