Let's face it, the Military Industrial Complex

is our federal government's number one jobs program. If Congress turned off the money spigot at the Pentagon, I bet we would have over 25% unemployment. Not saying this is a good thing, but that's the way it is and has been since the Cold War began, maybe even before that.

Wouldn't it be nice if we took some money and turned it into a jobs program that instead of building weapons that we sell all over the world and used it right here to create jobs in health care, education, green energy, affordable housing, child care, etc.

And that folks, is what President Biden is trying to do right now in Washington and predictably republicans are fighting it with every bit of energy they have. And he isn't even threatening the Defense budget.

This is the message we need to get out.
