Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan gives us big opportunities to get “fund us, cut military spending” into the election debate. It’ll take some work, though.
Paul Ryan’s platform says:
Throw more money at the Pentagon.
Slash safety net programs we use.
Give millionaires and billionaires more tax breaks.
It adds up to: austerity for us, prosperity for the Pentagon and the 1%.
But most media and think tanks aren’t picking up on the military part of the agenda. So that’s up to us.
Go to http://newprioritiesnetwork.org/ryan-page/. We’ve collected the sources and infographics you’ll need to
-bird-dog candidates and raise questions. (Yes, congressional candidates too: the clash of presidential ideologies will trickle down.)
-write letters to the editor, blog posts, tweets, and shape the debate.
