Federal budget crisis

What’s happening? What’s at stake? Who’s winning? Who’s losing? And what can we do about it?

Over the next 3 months there will be major budget decisions being made in Washington that could seriously impact our country for years to come. First we have to understand what’s happening and then we have to act if we want to protect jobs, save vital public services, end tax breaks for the richest companies on earth and reduce the Pentagon budget

The Budget for All Campaign invites you to
