Veterans Groups Demand "Not A Dime More" For Pentagon's 'Wasteful War Machine' Amid COVID-19

Not a dime of additional funding should be appropriated this year to the Pentagon's already bloated budget, which has enabled endless war while resources that could have helped the nation better respond to the coronavirus crisis have gone "chronically underfunded." That's the message of a letter (pdf) to congressional leadership delivered Wednesday by over 60 organizations.

"The COVID-19 crisis has revealed that decades of funneling trillions of dollars into the Pentagon while gutting critical social services, including public health measures, has made us less safe, not more," said Stephen Miles, executive director of Win Without War, in a statement.
