Move the Money Out of the Military


Set aside for a moment whether the U.S. government has too much or too little money. It's spending the money it has destructively.

Fifty-seven percent of discretionary spending going into the military is too much. Tell Congress and the president to move the money:

U.S. military spending -- across several government departments -- is wildly out of control, amounting to roughly half of federal discretionary spending and half of global military spending. The sequester agreement makes a small reduction in military spending.

We urge you to keep military spending to the sequester level or lower without allowing extra funds to be hidden in war budgets or anywhere else, to plan for further reductions, to create a commission to oversee the retraining and retooling required for a smooth transition from war industries to peaceful industries, and to invest the additional savings in human and environmental needs at home and abroad.
