Across the country, grassroots activists are standing up to make their  
priorities loud and clear. The middle class is the backbone of America, and  
it’s time Congress listened to us, not Pentagon CEOs. As a decade of war

programs that benefit all Americans.

The people of Massachusetts voted for the Budget for All in all 91 cities and  
towns where it was on the ballot. They said Congress should stop cuts to  
vital programs, create jobs, tax the 1% and corporations, bring the troops

Massachusetts voters!
