Kansas City Move the Money Campaign

The Federal Budget Crisis Is Not A Deficit Crisis.

It's A Crisis Of Priorities.

Choosing to continue enormous tax breaks for the millionaires and spending 60 percent of public discretionary dollars on the Pentagon makes no sense, as millions struggle to find work and to feed and house their families.

Economic disparity or economic equality

By Ira Harritt, program coordinator in Kansas City

“This is America’s opportunity to help bridge the gulf between the haves and the have-nots. The question is whether America will do it.”
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in his last Sunday sermon, Remaining Awake through a Great Revolution  

Dr. King’s question is still before us. We still have the ability to bridge this gulf, even though it has been growing larger and larger, especially in the past 30 years.

Fiscal Cliff on Trial Verdict, Dave Pack

Board member, renders his verdict of the fiscal cliff and its perpetrators, commenting, "In study after study, it has been shown that a billion dollars of U.S. spending on the military produces much fewer jobs than a billion dollars in spending almost anywhere else." He analyzed excessive military spending and cuts and conversions which can be made without decreasing national security while increasing employment.

Fiscal Cliff on Trial Verdict, Dave Kingsley

Fiscal Cliff on Trial Forum- David Kingsley, PhD., KU Medical School and Convener of KS & MO Gray Panthers, renders his verdict of the fiscal cliff and its perpetrators, commenting, "We don't have a fiscal crisis. We have a moral crisis." He discussed the consequences of proposed cuts to Medicare, social security, and the social safety net and the impact on our community.
