Tax Day 2012 is also the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS), April 17, 2012. AFSC will be joining partners in 35 countries around the world and cities all over the US to call for cuts to the military buget and for funding for vital human needs and job creation.
How would you spend your tax dollars?
The operational costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are nearing one trillion dollars.
This is difficult to comprehend while our national unemployment rate is at 10%. Imagine for a second how that one trillion dollars could help put people back to work.
