Cut the War Budget

by
Abby Zimet

With Congress' new focus on spending cuts, Brave New Foundation has launched a campaign to make real cuts in an out-of-control war budget - and to call out Congress' ties to the military industry to get a budget that "serves the national interest, not the balance sheets of war profiteers." Sign, rant, act here.

"The war industry executives, their bought-and-paid-for allies in the government and think tank worlds, and the careerists at the Pentagon are worried about their gravy train slowing down.  What you’re experiencing is another attempted mugging by white collar criminals wrapped in the flag."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
