- U.S. Wars & Militarism
In the Time it Takes You to Read This...
The Pentagon will spend $2,283,044. And that amount is only set to increase in the budget proposals we’ve seen.
Our nation is not stronger when Congress spends months debating whether we should feed food insecure families with programs like SNAP while failing to seriously debate whether the Pentagon should spend more than $650 billion in the next year. And because the Pentagon has never been audited, the money that isn’t spent on war is often wasted or misused.

I think you’ll agree that the federal budget should be a reflection of our moral values as a country and our collective priorities as taxpayers. But right now, we are prioritizing war and failing to adequately invest in the programs that provide real security to communities across the country – programs like Medicaid, social security, SNAP, and CHIP. These are the programs on which people rely every day.
When you give to FCNL, you support a whole community of lobbyists and volunteer advocates who are working to defend social welfare programs and reduce wasteful Pentagon spending. Please chip in $5, $10, or whatever you can to help strengthen this lobbying work in the weeks and months to come.
