Providing for the Common Defense is one of the few legitimate responsibilities of the federal government. Yet, President Obama’s proposed budget will exacerbate current law by accelerating arbitrary reductions in our nation’s defense budget.

Sign this petition and join 16,131 Americans in the fight to preserve the federal government’s first priority.

The Petition:

 

  1. Providing for the Common Defense is the federal government’s most important responsibility.
  2. President Obama will leave our military unable to field and train forces, conduct current missions, or prepare for future threats.
  3. Congress must reject these inadequate defense policies: arbitrary, across-the-board defense cuts should not be used.
