A program for real change...


What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Call 800-517-5696 today to protest more war funding!

This important vote could come up this week; possibly next week… Act today.

Insist on a response in writing.

Call 800-517-5696 today to protest more war funding!

Do you want the United States government to spend tens of billions of dollars more to fund the war in Iraq and expand the war in Afghanistan?

Next week, your representative will be asked to vote on a war supplemental bill that would do just that.

Call toll-free on May 12

Say no to more spending on two wars. Urge your representative to use our tax dollars to:

bring the troops home
take care of them upon their return
rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan
take care of health, education, and energy here at home
Oppose more war funding.

The U.S. government already spends $1.9 million every minute on the military — and that doesn't include funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is the position of our Organizing Council:

All of this money could be going towards the creation of a public health care system. Any country that can spend this kind of money on wars and militarism that includes funding over 800 U.S. foreign military bases dotting the globe; subsidizing the Israeli killing machine; and fighting wars in three countries at the same time certainly can afford to provide its own people a first-rate, world-class public health care system that is comprehensive, all-inclusive and universal which is publicly funded, publicly administered and publicly delivered. Everyone in. All the profiteers out. Health care for people not for profit.

As a working class mother I did not raise my children to go fight wars and kill other people so oil companies can profit.

I voted for Barack Obama very reluctantly and this war funding is not the change I voted for.

Please call today.

Call 800-517-5696 today to protest more war funding!

Two-million casino workers employed in the Indian Gaming Industry go to jobs in smoke-filled casinos getting poverty wages without any rights under state, federal or tribal labor laws.

The same government funding these wars created this injustice in the Indian Gaming Industry and refuses to right this wrong.
