Fighting for a U.S. federal budget that prioritizes peace, economic security and shared prosperity
This is a president and military ramping up for war, in a country that has had more than enough. There's no other justification for the military spending Trump wants.
Is the United States doomed to keep making the same mistakes?
The priorities in Congress this week are clear: a $700 billion authorization for military spending in FY 2018, and a $1.5 trillion tax plan that bestows untold wealth upon the already jaw-droppingly wealthy.
Today's Senate vote to require new congressional authorization for ongoing wars may have failed - but it still represents progress.
The president's deeply disturbing tendency to glorify war has no place in determining our country's use of nuclear weapons.
Proposals for U.S. military spending are starkly different. See how they stack up.
If President Trump has shown us anything with this budget, it’s that he will seek to increase military spending, even if he doesn’t know why he’s doing it.
Taxes are like membership dues. We pay them to fund our priorities – the services and programs we care about – and they are also an investment in our country’s future.
Congress is in "recess" from April 7 to April 21, 2017. That means that members of Congress are home in their states or districts -- and they're ready to meet with you.
Trump wants to take $54 billion from human needs and give it to the military. What if we did the reverse?
