The president's budget request for 2015 shows that his priorities are still dangerously backwards, asking for yet another increase for nuclear weapons while crucial domestic spending continues to be slashed.
Our allies in Congress are stepping up to take these misguided priorities head on. Companion bills have been introduced in the House and Senate that would each save $100 billion in the next ten years by reducing the number of nuclear weapons and cutting nuclear weapons spending.
In the Senate, Sen. Ed Markey's (D-MA) bill is the SANE Act (S. 2070) and in the House, Rep. Earl Blumenauer has introduced the REIN-IN Act (H.R. 4107). We need your help to get your representatives on board supporting cuts to nukes.
Tuesday, March 25th is a National Call-in Day for the SANE and REIN-IN Acts. Call your representatives through the capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
