Are You an Enabler of Pentagon Fraud?

I told Congress to cut federal spending using DownsizeDC.org's campaign.

 

Please do the same. You may borrow from or copy this letter…

 

The Pentagon is asking for $5.6 billion to fund Obama's illegal war on ISIS.

 

But…

 

THE PENTAGON DOESN’T NEED THE MONEY.

 

Of last year's $80 billion war budget, THIRTY BILLION went UNSPENT in Afghanistan and other conflicts. It became the Pentagon’s SLUSH FUND that dodged Congressionally-mandated spending caps. It used the money for non-war related programs. (http://bit.ly/1uEwwID)

 

Is this the REAL reason for ALL the wars?

 

After all, there appears to be little reason to fight third-word militias an ocean away, EXCEPT…

 

* Endless war means endless spending

* NEW wars mean MORE spending

* The only winner is the Military-Industrial Complex

 

Do you CONSENT (http://bit.ly/10u608Z) to this fraud?

 

Are you complicit in it?

 

YOU work for ME. I demand you…

 

* REJECT this budget request and this illegal war

* REJECT the ENTIRE war budget and bring the troops home

 

This will save $65 billion next year, end the slush fund, and force the Pentagon to live within its own budget.

 

Stop the fraud!
