The way we raise and spend our taxes tells us a lot about what our country  
has become.

Why do working people pay their taxes, while the rich and corporations get  
huge tax breaks?

Why are we cutting medical research, Head Start, housing, food stamps and  
unemployment insurance -- while we spend more on the Pentagon than the next  
10 countries combined?

Why is there no national jobs program -- when there are still more than 10  
million unemployed and our state plans to spend $2 billion on new prisons?

Why can energy companies pollute the atmosphere and destroy the climate, but  
there is no price for emitting carbon?

We need a /Budget for All!/

Our country spends more on the military than the next 13 biggest military  
spenders in the world, combined. The Ryan budget proposal particularly  
targets these social services for devastating cuts. We need the ‘Budget for  
All’ that supports social services and the needs of people.
