It’s time to stop the budget gimmicks and be honest about our bloated Pentagon budget. After years of using war spending as a slush fund to avoid fiscal discipline, it’s time to cut wasteful spending and bring our tax dollars home.
Congress has created a Super-Committee to address federal budget priorities and the deficit. There are LOTS of problems with this process, but it is there, and it will act. Senator Kerry (D-MA) is on of the members of the committee. People in MA and surrounding states are collecting signatures on a petition calling on him to protect Social Security, control health care costs with Medicare for All, end the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and cut the bloated Pentagon budget. Please download the petition, collect signatures and return it to the addresses on the petition
