We could cut over $960 billion from the Department of Defense and be just as safe as we are now. Perhaps even safer.
With the national debt continuing to soar, unemployment teetering around 10 percent and the threat of a double-dip recession hovering, the last thing we need is for a government bureaucracy rife with inefficiencies to continue costing us billions of dollars with no overhaul in sight.
But there is another way.
Led by Congressmen Barney Frank and Ron Paul, a bipartisan group in Congress is demanding an honest look at military spending without sacrificing our safety.
The good news? Over $960 billion could be cut without endangering our current safeguards and programs. The bad news? This opportunity is probably not on your member of Congress’s radar.
Which is why we need your help. Send a message to your member of Congress, asking him or her to sign on in support of Congressman Frank’s effort to clean up the wasteful spending in the Pentagon!
We’d like to believe that our military power stems directly from a financially sound American government and a vibrant economy that supports not just the protection of the people, but the education, health and well-being of the people as well.
But we have to speak up for what we believe. Will you tell your representative to help put an end to wasteful government spending by supporting Congressman Frank’s letter?
Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower may have said it best: “The United States should spend as much as necessary on national defense, but not a penny more.”
We hope Congress thinks so too.
Thanks for all your help,
