Here at Peace Action, we've always known it's not a deficit crisis, it's a revenue crisis. We live in the richest nation in the world, with plenty of money for our needs, if Congress would just cut the out-of-control Pentagon budget.
Now, Time is on our side.
Last week, just one day after President Obama announced that he will be conducting "a fundamental review of America's missions, capabilities, and our role in a changing world," Time published How to Save a Trillion Dollars from the federal budget by cutting Pentagon spending.
From Time to President Obama, the tide is turning against Pentagon spending. Now, more than ever, we can influence the debate on out-of-control Pentagon spending.
Call your Congress member today and demand: Move the money from wars and weapons to jobs and human needs at home.

With the wars in Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq continuing to drain our nation's resources and destroy lives, Republicans are calling for deep cuts in domestic programs without any consideration for cuts to the budget elephant in the room: Pentagon spending.
Call Congress today at (202) 224-3121 and say: It's a revenue crisis, not a deficit crisis. Cut Pentagon spending and end the wars!
While Time is on our side, our time is now. Together, we can shape the future of our nation's role in the world.
Humbly for Peace,
Paul Kawika Martin
Organizing & Political Director
