Restore the American Dream for the 99%

For the past year, Peace Action has collaborated with civil rights, labor and community groups to fight for The Dream that Dr. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement fought for.

The Dream is plain and simple, the right to a decent life in a more peaceful and just world.

This week, the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) introduced the Restore the American Dream for the 99% Act which creates more than 5 million jobs in the next two years and saves more than $2 trillion over 10 years.

The bill would cut wasteful weapons spending, ends the wars overseas, strengthens Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and implements emergency job creation measures and establishes fair taxation rates,

The Restore the American Dream for the 99% Act is inspired by The Contract for the American Dream — a 10 point plan created over the summer by more than 130,000 people in house meetings around the country and endorsed by 300,000.

With the collapse of the Congressional Super Committee and the continuing doomsday commentary by the highly paid military-industrial-complex lobbyists, our allies on Capitol Hill have to stand strong for The Dream of justice and peace.

Join us to fight for The Dream!

The goal now is to help get more than 100 Congressional co-sponsors, and prove that there’s a better way to solve the economic crisis than laying-off first responders and cutting health care.

Time is now for the rich to pay their fair share and to cut the Pentagon budget and end the wars.

It is the right time to join with community and labor to fight for The Dream.
