Bipartisan Coalition Supports Options to Reduce Pentagon Pork

Everyone Agrees

Everyone Agrees

In a rare occurrence in Washington, a broad spectrum of organizations have signed on to a letter expressing their support for amendments that would cut wasteful Pentagon pork that threatens the core investments that make a strong middle-class economy possible.  Let your Congressman know that you support sensible options to maintain America’s security while still protecting Food Stamps, Head Start, and Meals on Wheels. It is vital for Congress to put the needs of the American people before the greed of major defense contractors.

Let Congress Know the F-35 is a Bad Deal for America

CF-1_flight_testJoin the petition with Moveon.org and let Congress know that our priorities should be to invest in America and not line the pockets of major defense contractors.  At $1.5 trillion and counting, the F-35 is the most expensive weapons-grade Congressional boondoggle of all time.  An army of lobbyist have lined up to protect the F-35 from any cuts from sequestration, meanwhile sequestration is hitting kids in Head Start and seniors who rely on Meals on Wheels.   We can’t let this stand.

The most expensive weapons program in human history is a monument to Congressional Pork and misplaced priorities.  The American public is suffering through Acuts to Head Start, Meals on Wheels, and essential Nutrition benefits; meanwhile lifetime costs for the F-35 have escalated to $1.5 trillion and counting.  We urge you to sign on to the CREDO petition to be delivered to Members of Congress urging them to put the essential needs of the American public before the greed of major defense contractors.
