TELL CONGRESS: Cut the Pentagon Budget
The report from the Congressional Supercommittee on balancing the budget is due before Thanksgiving! While Defense budget cuts have been placed on the table, there is resistance in Congress to any cuts in the Pentagon budget, despite its doubling in the past ten years. A $1 trillion cut in defense spending over ten years is needed to balance the budget. Tell Congress to get serious about defense budget cuts! Especially if Rep. Jim Clyburn who is on the Supercommittte is your Representative.

Friends Cmte on National Legislation Suggested Letter to Congressmen
As Congress looks for ways to reduce the federal budget deficit, please support cutting Pentagon spending by $1 trillion over the next ten years, as was recommended by the Sustainable Defense Task Force. Please speak with your colleagues on the congressional "supercommittee" and urge them to recommend this cut in their proposal.
Pentagon spending has nearly doubled in the last ten years. While our states and cities are cutting back services, our country is continuing to pour money into war and military strategies that are not making us safer.
Please let me know if you will support cutting the Pentagon budget by $1 trillion over ten years in any legislation to address the budget deficit.
