PETITION TO CUT $200 BILLION
FROM THE MILITARY BUDGET
America's military budget is painfully bloated, with over $700 billion spent annually. Our government spends more per capita on the military than any other country, except Saudi Arabia. We also spend more than the next seven countries combined.
Redirecting $200 billion each year from the military would free up $2 trillion or more over the next decade, which would allow more funds to be directed to projects like Medicare for All and a Green New Deal against climate change.
And even with such large spending cuts from the Pentagon, the Pentagon's budget would remain more than enough to keep America safe at a level well above the nation's post-World War II historical average.
