U.S. Department of War Budget

The Friends of Peace erected the billboard about the bloated military budget to help build awareness of this incredible waste. The money spent on imperialist ventures is badly needed
at home, especially during the current severe recession.
Thanks for visiting our web site for more information. The pie chart below gives a more detailed breakdown of the U.S. budget. All sectors of spending are dwarfed by the war dollars.
For more details and suggestions of actions you can take to help slash the war spending, go
to www.nationalpriorities.org

Congressman Barney Frank has been a leader in the effort
to slash the military budget. He has proposed a 25% decrease in military spending. For a recent article on his
efforts, go to http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/23/the-barney-commission-def_n_550066.html
