Wars Impact on the Economy
Liberating our country from militarism and war will allow our military to be redesigned to defend our country instead of its current design which is to fight multiple wars in other people's countries. This reduction in the scope of our military will allow trillions of dollars over the next decade to be used for infrastructure, clean energy, schools, access to health care and supporting our local economies. It will allow our bravest and brightest to direct energies and creativity to building better communities, economies, and prosperity for all.
We will work to increase awareness of the impact of war on our resources and economy among our members of Congress and the public.
