Landslide win in Massachusetts for human needs budget

On Tuesday, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot question initiated by AFSC in coalition with dozens of other groups: the Budget for All. 

The Budget for All calls for the prevention of cuts to social programs; investment in jobs that strengthen the U.S. economy; an end to corporate tax loopholes and the Bush tax cuts for high incomes; and reduction of military spending. 

We are encouraged, proud, and re-energized by this show of popular support for a change in federal budget priorities!
