Call on Congress to Cut Nuclear Weapons Spending Today!

IMAGE_Nukes_13

Have you had enough of excessive nuclear weapons spending? Let your Congressional Representative know today! Congress currently has a key opportunity to be fiscally responsible by cutting out expensive and outdated nuclear weapons systems.

The president has submitted his budget request for the 2014 fiscal year, and nuclear weapons spending is up for the fourth year in a row, while other programs are facing cuts. 

However, Rep. Ed Markey of Massachusetts has reintroduced the Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures Act (SANE), H.R. 1506., legislation that would cut nuclear weapons spending by more than $1 hundred billion over the next decade.

Congress is starting work now on the appropriation process, and  the House will be considering the National Defense Authorization Act in the week of June 10. This is the time to call about this bill and let all of Congress know that their constituents want to stop wasting money on nuclear weapons.

Call your U.S. representative today using the contact information below, and either thank them for already sponsoring H.R. 1506, the SANE Act, or ask them to co-sponsor this legislation today!

Here is a Sample Message:

"My name is ___ and I live in ____. I am calling to ask Rep. ____ to cosponsor H.R. 1506, the SANE Act, to save money by cutting wasteful nuclear weapons spending."

Let Congress know that they have a great opportunity to be fiscally responsible and keep us safer by co-sponsoring the SANE Act!
