Resistbot Petition: Make the Department of Defense clean up their act & stop wasting taxpayer money!
An open letter to the President & U.S. Congress

Make the Department of Defense clean up their act & stop wasting taxpayer money!

291 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

President Biden just approved $858 billion in military spending — an increase of about $273 billion.  The budget for the military continues to increase even though the Pentagon cannot provide an accurate accounting of how the money is spent. In 1990 Congress passed a law directing all federal agencies to produce regular, audited financial statements. The annual audit allows Congress and the public to hold federal agencies accountable for how they spend tax dollars. But the law does not include any consequences for non-compliance, and the Department of Defense did not even attempt to complete an audit until 2017. Since then it has failed the audit process five times. In this year's audit, only seven of the 27 entities that make up the Department of Defense received a clean bill of financial health. The Department of Defense spends about $1 billion per year, employing 1600 auditors, to conduct the financial review but has not been able to achieve meaningful improvements. Why are you not insisting that it does? This is taxpayer money. We demand accountability! Please push the DoD to clean up its act now! Thanks.
