Jobs Not Wars
Jobs-Not-Wars is a time-limited petition campaign to urge the president and congress to abandon austerity solutions to the deficit and instead to end the war, cut military spending, tax the super-rich, and redirect resources to restore and protect the social safety net, create jobs, deal with climate change and meet other urgent social needs.
Mr. President and Members of Congress:
We do not accept the proposition that the most urgent challenge the country faces is to cut the deficit and that the price of doing so must be deep cuts to social programs and basic services. We do not believe, as some argue, that the Pentagon and other national security agencies should be immune from any significant reductions, or that the wealthiest Americans and large corporations should not be required to contribute a fair share of the cost of maintaining the government that has enabled them to benefit so richly.
We call upon you to redirect your efforts and federal resources to:
Require those at the top of the income ladder, giant corporations and financial speculators to pay their fair share of taxes.
Our views are shared by a majority opinion of the American people. Those who seek to preserve their privileges and sustain present levels of military spending while prescribing greater austerity for the rest of us are outside the mainstream.
We ask that you summon the personal courage and moral fortitude to transcend partisan differences to serve the common good and public interest.
