Subject: Tell Congress: Don't roll back defense spending cuts

Dear Friend,

Our nation's military budget is grotesquely bloated.

Just about the only good thing to come out of last year's debt ceiling debacle was that the law Congress passed to raise the debt ceiling has the potential to reduce defense spending by $492 billion over the next ten years.

It would normally be a very heavy lift to get Congress to pass any kind of reductions to defense spending. But the legislation that raised the debt ceiling was designed in the case of a deadlock on the Super Committee to mandate across-the-board cuts starting in 2013, including cuts to defense, that would be unattractive to both Democrats and Republicans alike.

The Super Committee did deadlock. And now that they are faced with the prospect of mandatory reductions in defense spending, we can count on members in both chambers of Congress and in both parties to try to shield the American war machine from any sort of funding reductions.

I just signed a petition telling Congress not to roll back cuts to defense spending. I hope you do, too.
