Tell Congress you support Rep. Grayson's "The War is Making You Poor" Act

    1. Petition by

For too long the true cost of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan has been hidden by procedural gimmicks.  For the past nine years, funding for these wars has been passed as an "emergency supplemental" to avoid the normal budgeting process.  Next year's cost will be $195,000,000,000.  

Rep. Alan Grayson, one of the boldest progressive voices in Congress, has a  plan to change all that.  He is introducing a new bill called "The War is Making You Poor Act". It eliminates separate funding for the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, and eliminates federal income taxes for everyone's first $35,000 of income ($70,000 for couples). And it pays down the national debt.

Sounds like a much more sensible way to allocate our tax dollars, doesn't it? Rep. Grayson needs your support to make this happen. Sign our petition to your representatives in congress urging them to vote for "The War is Making You Poor Act".
