WASHINGTON, DC — CREDO Action, Indivisible, MoveOn, and Win Without War released the following statement in response to the reports that House Democratic leadership has withdrawn its budget caps-raising bill, H.R. 2021, from the floor:
Last week, we asked House Democrats to scrap their budget proposal which would have thrown even more money at the Pentagon’s already overflowing coffers at the expense of investing in our communities and in solutions to real global challenges like climate change.
We were encouraged that House progressives agreed, and we commend House leadership for ultimately pulling the bill from consideration.
Now that the public and the progressive movement has spoken, we urge Democratic leadership to come up with a new plan based on the realities that are facing our country, and that prioritizes human needs over an already-bloated Pentagon budget.”
CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
