Action Alert

Call today to cut Pentagon pork

I wouldn’t mind living in a 19th century chateau in Belgium with my own personal chef.
Alas, that is not the lifestyle of a peace activist. But it is the lifestyle of the top military brass, and you’re paying for it.

Yes, while the Pentagon is furloughing civilian employees and complaining about the devastation caused by sequestration, the taxpayers are paying for high-end housing and services for military leaders—not to mention the billions wasted on weapons we don’t need.

The House will be voting on the Pentagon’s budget starting today. Call (202) 224-3121 right now and tell your representative to vote for amendments to cut wasteful Pentagon spending. Then click here to report your call.

Representatives are offering a slew of amendments to chip away at Pentagon bloat, and this is likely to be the last major vote on Pentagon spending in the House this year.

With sequestration still unresolved, we need to keep insisting that the Pentagon must face budget cuts like everyone else. Call your representative at (202) 224-3121 to cut war and weapons spending. Use this message as a guide and add your own thoughts:

“My name is [your name] and I live in [city]. I’m calling to urge [your representative] to vote for amendments to the defense appropriations bill to cut wasteful spending on war and weapons we don’t need.”

Then, click here to tell me how your call went.

Thank you for keeping the pressure on.
