Hats off to Rep. Alan Grayson for supporting such a simple act that needs to be passed. Even the name “The War Is Making You Poor Act” is clear cut!
As this C-SPAN clip proves, we’ve already been spending too much money on the military- why would we need $159 billion more?
I voted for Obama for a number of reasons, one of them being that he claimed to be able to “bring the troops home.” Of course, this has yet to happen and he even recently granted $159 billion more for the war.
This presentation is so easy to understand, I’ll be damned if the act doesn’t get passed. I’m one of the 33% of Americans that make under $35,000 a year, and I could really use that tax break.
