We’re excited to announce Pull the Pork from the Pentagon — a nationwide Day of Action on February 27 to rein in wasteful Pentagon spending.

We must cut the things we don’t need, including Pentagon pork, to pay for the things we do like education, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.

As a decade of wars comes to a close, now is the time and we can reduce the bloated Pentagon budget by $50-$100 billion a year without harming our national security or our troops.

It’s time Congress listened to us and invested in our priorities. The middle class is the source of American power, not Pentagon CEOs.

That’s why USAction affiliates and allies from across the progressive movement are coming together to demand Congress makes the right choice — protect and invest in vital programs like housing, food stamps, job training and social insurance that millions rely upon, not corporate welfare for Pentagon CEOs and lobbyists.
