On July 21, 2020, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 324 to 93 (with 13 not voting) to DEFEAT a proposal to move a mere 10% of military spending to human, environmental, and health needs. Here are the lists of 93 YEA and 324 NAY votes: http://clerk.house.gov/cgi-bin/vote.asp?year=2020&rollnumber=148 It’s rare for our local Representative Denny Heck (WA 10th Cong.Dist.) to vote correctly on such an issue, but in this case he was one of the 93 who voted to cut the Pentagon’s budget.
MOST Democrats joined ALL Republicans (except for 13 Republicans who did not vote) in defeating this sensible proposal.
NEITHER of the big parties is on our side!
Public opinion polling DOES want to CUT Pentagon funding and fund sensible, decent things instead.
Congress is on the WRONG side!
We must ORGANIZE VIGOROUSLY at the grassroots to MOBILIZE PUBLIC OPINION to change federal budget priorities! If you’d like to help, please contact me at (360) 491-9093 or firstname.lastname@example.org
