Lindsay Koshgarian, Program Director of the National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies: “Experts have long argued that cutting Pentagon spending could provide billions of dollars for clean energy, health care or other priorities, while actually making us safer. Now we see that a majority of Americans share the common-sense view that much of our Pentagon spending could be better used elsewhere. It’s time to stop the runaway spending that only benefits Pentagon contractors and their wealthy shareholders and use those dollars to benefit the majority of Americans.”
