Obama wants to send $40 billion where???
April 15, 2013
This Tax Day, CODEPINK is joining the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation in opposing President Obamaís plan to give Israel $40 billion more of U.S. taxpayer money for weapons to oppress Palestinians.
President Obama released his 2014 budget request last Wednesday, which includes $3.1 billion in military aid for Israel, plus $316 million for joint U.S.-Israeli anti-missile systems. Last
month in Jerusalem, Obama pledged to extend U.S. military aid to
Israel well beyond his presidency, with one report noting that his administration is opening negotiations to give Israel up to $40 billion in U.S. taxpayer-financed weapons through 2028!
This plan is even more outrageous now that the effects of the sequestration are denying cancer-fighting drugs to Medicare patients and Obama is proposing to cut Social Security.
How is it possible that we don't have money for
healthcare or education, but we are increasing money to Israel for
begins Israelís celebration of its independence. After 65 years, we
believe itís time for Israel to stop being dependent on the U.S.
taxpayer to implement its apartheid policies toward Palestinians.
Thank you for taking action this Tax Day to
oppose President Obamaís outrageous plan to give Israel $40 billion in
additional U.S. weapons.
