The Federal Budget: A Moral Choice
As a nation, we have the resources and imagination to make a valuable contribution to the survival of the planet and the well-being of the world's people. But for too long, our country has invested in an enormous military, shaping a world based on war and the threat of war and denying people in our communities the health, education and environmental security they need to thrive.
This issue of the Washington Newsletter focuses on the consequences of the U.S. addiction to Pentagon spending and what you can do with FCNL to begin to change it. With the money the U.S. spends on the military we could end childhood hunger, dramatically shrink the federal debt and build an environmentally sustainable future. We need only the strength and will to do it.
