Bernie Sanders To The Rescue Again

Filed under: 25% solution, New Priorities — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:19 am

Bernie Sanders added a line to last year’s defense appropriations bill that required the Pentagon to list contractors convicted of fraud and barred from future defense work.  The report is out, and many “barred” contractors are still doing DoD work.  Worth a read, especially now that we’re so concerned about military spending.

Things To Know About Afghanistan

David Swanson spells out six things about the Afghanistan war that war supporters should know.  They are six excellent reasons to bring the troops home, save lives, and make a start toward reducing war spending by one trillion dollars over the next ten years.  The vote in Congress to increase funding may come up this week.  Our strategy must be to delay that vote into September, because by then the push for it may go away.  Call your congressman at 202-224-3121 and tell him you don’t want more money going to the Afghanistan War.
