Tell Congress: Don't Slash Budgets, Bring Our War $$ Home!
From Tunisia and Egypt, to Wisconsin and Ohio, let's bring our war dollars home! Bombing Afghanistan, occupying Iraq, and maintaining more than 1,000 military bases around the globe costs billions a week, and aid to dictators like Egypt's recently deposed Hosni Mubarak costs U.S. taxpayers billions a year. Meanwhile domestic programs like heating assistance for low-income families, and public workers like firefighters and teachers, see their budgets slashed.
Just 150 soldiers coming home from Afghanistan this year would solve Wisconsin's budget shortfall – 150 out of the approximately 80,000 currently stationed there.
People everywhere are rising up to demand funding for jobs, housing, and education, not for wars and occupation. And with the inspiring current of people taking action in their home states, these movements will continue to grow!
Type in your zip code below to tell President Obama, and your Congressperson and Senators, to turn the tide of brutal budget slashing by bringing our war $$ home.
