We are told that there is no money for good jobs, good schools, good health care, good housing and clean energy. At the same time we are spending trillions of dollars on wars that leave us all unsafe but benefit weapons makers and oil companies. And we're all paying the price... veterans who come home looking for jobs, school children whose schools are closing, parents who must choose between the mortgage or rent and health insurance.
One solution is to bring the war dollars home!
