Action Alert: Jobs Not Wars Call-in 2/27/2013

The Jobs Not Wars Campaign is calling for a change in our nation’s priorities.  We can only meet the needs of the American people and our communities by cutting the bloated out-of-control Pentagon budget and by making the super-rich and giant corporations pay their fair share.    (NOTE:  Read the entire action alert HERE.)

We will strengthen our security more by investing in jobs and caring for people than by lining the pockets of weapons makers, their executives and lobbyists.

Does the budget exist to serve the people or the profit interests of the arms industry?

The time to act is now !

The Congressional switchboard number is: (202) 224-3121

A toll-free line is: (866) 338-1015

• Tell your representative and senators that you want them to support The Balancing Act (HR 505) and oppose both sequestration and austerity measures.

•  Tell them to stand with the majority who support substantial cuts to the Pentagon budget in favor of:

► Job creation – putting people back to work is the best way to kick-start the economy

► Protecting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act and other safety net programs

► Rebuilding public infrastructure and investing in our communities

► Protecting the environment and investing in sustainable energy sources

► Ending the War in Afghanistan now – stopping the cycle of endless war – and caring for our veterans when they return

► Ensuring the super-rich and giant corporations pay their fair share.
