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.

The Budget for All coalition pays a visit to their Senators to show their support for job creation, increased tax contributions from wealthy individuals and corporations, the prevention of cuts to social services, and the redirection of Pentagon spending to meet human needs.

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.  

Show Congress how to make a better budget

Landslide win in Massachusetts for human needs budget

On Tuesday, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot question initiated by AFSC in coalition with dozens of other groups: the Budget for All. 

The Budget for All calls for the prevention of cuts to social programs; investment in jobs that strengthen the U.S. economy; an end to corporate tax loopholes and the Bush tax cuts for high incomes; and reduction of military spending. 

We are encouraged, proud, and re-energized by this show of popular support for a change in federal budget priorities!
