There are folks who would have us believe that we can’t change the federal budget. That we can’t afford changes that would fight inequality, reduce wasteful and destructive Pentagon spending, and shift toward a budget that better reflects our collective values.
They’re wrong, and we’re not buying it.
NPP exists to make you more powerful and to keep you informed about our federal budget so that together we can advocate for our friends and families, and our communities.
Make a contribution to NPP today to help us fight for a federal budget that reflects the values and needs of all Americans!
