One side of the current debate over public spending priorities favors cuts to all the wrong things.
The other side opposes any cuts at all.
This is a debate that leads nowhere useful. So we're attempting an intervention with a video that we think you'll want to watch and share.
We can and should cut spending on war preparations, wars, foreign bases, spies and assassins, prisons, the drug war, highways, etc. We should move the money into expanded useful programs funding human needs and green energy.
We should not cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.
Please watch the video and share your thoughts with Congress and the President by clicking here.
Please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.
