PULL THE PORK From the Pentagon

February 22, 2013 by IPB

“USAction and allies across the country are holding events nationwide to rein in wasteful Pentagon spending.

A diverse coalition of 119 national progressive organizations representing millions of Americans have have already signed on to a letter to Congress calling for just that.

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

As a decade of wars comes to a close, it’s time to rein in wasteful spending and pull the pork from the Pentagon. We can reduce the bloated Pentagon budget by $50-$100 billion a year without harming our national security or our troops.
