Please cut wasteful Pentagon spending now!

I am a constituent who believes the failure to control wasteful Pentagon spending makes it harder to meet our country’s needs. The U.S. spends more on the military than any other country in the world, yet we repeatedly fail to spend the required amount of funds on food, housing, health care, and education that our communities need. Recently, the DoD failed its audit for the sixth time in a row when it failed to account for $1.9 trillion―half its $3.8 trillion budget. The Department of Defense is the only federal agency that has never passed a full audit and they didn’t even complete audits until 2018. As your constituent, I am asking you to cut wasteful Defense spending in FY 2025 government funding bills. Federal dollars that go to wasteful Department of Defense contracts are funds that do not go to meet human needs. One-third to one-half of the Pentagon budget goes to corporate military contractors that drastically price gouge the DoD by as much as 40%. Trillions of dollars spent―and unaccounted for―undermine our security by preventing us from investing in the shared prosperity that comes from more housing, climate and public health protections, ending hunger, and more education. Please cut wasteful Pentagon spending and invest that money in vulnerable communities.
