We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
The whole point of the sequester was that it would pinch everyone, and everyone would get serious about the budget. That was until the 1% started getting pinched. Furloughs and layoffs for air traffic controllers caused flight delays, and we couldn't have that, could we? In two shakes of a lamb's tail, the Congress passed legislation to take air travel out of the sequester. Not day care, or meals on wheels, or national parks. Just the flyers. All 1% of them. Congress - especially the Democrats - should be ashamed.
