The People's Priorities
Last week, on March 25, the “People’s Budget,” offered by the Congressional Progressive Caucus, garnered 96 votes, the largest show of support for this alternative in five years -- nearly 30 percent of the House, and a majority of Democrats. This alternative more closely reflects FCNL’s budget priorities than any other proposal.See "The People's Budget and the People's Priorities."
FCNL Statement of Legislative Policy
"Militarization has permeated our society, skewing our national budget toward support for the military and its attendant industries and forcing our local economies increasingly to depend on them. Although national security is widely perceived to depend on military strength, more weapons do not provide more security. Military expansion provokes fear, resentment and potential retaliation."
