New priorities are needed now:

  • Attacks on Medicaid, Food Stamps and other programs for America’s most vulnerable
  • Libraries closing in Hartford
  • Devastating changes to environmental protections in the face of severe environmental events
  • Localities faced with cuts education support and even bankruptcy
  • Unfunded deteriorating infrastructure
  • The return to ‘Law and Order’ mentality while militarizing law enforcement rather than improving the relationship of the police to their communities
  • All these while increasing the huge amount of our resources to a war machine that long ago stopped serving national issues

60 Percent of Discretionary Spending is Military and Veterans
