Subject: Why Are We Still Paying For This?
As Congress debates the federal budget, they are deciding how many low-income families will lose monthly housing assistance; how many women and children will face cutbacks in food support; how local governments will maintain bridges, sewers and roads; and how much money to pour into perpetuating a nuclear arsenal that is both immoral and unnecessary.
This proposal, H.R. 1506, would nearly halve the number of nuclear-armed submarines in the U.S. arsenal, cancel plans for the F-35 fighter jet and the $10 billion B61 nuclear bomb refurbishment project, stop construction of a uranium processing facility in Oak Ridge, TN to make materials for new nuclear weapons, and more.
