HeadlineMay 24, 2019

Back in the United States, a new campaign is calling on 2020 presidential candidates to pledge to cut Pentagon spending by at least $200 billion annually to pay for Medicare for all, a Green New Deal and other programs. The campaign pledge, called “Put People Over the Pentagon,” also promotes alternatives to war and presses lawmakers to prevent the president from ordering military action without a declaration of war from Congress.
