I was blown away yesterday when I read an article at Talking Points Memo reporting House Minority Leader John Boehner’s support for a military spending freeze. This echoes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for a freeze on Pentagon spending.
Now is the time for fiscal conservatives and peace advocates to plow common ground. I cannot think of a better opportunity for President Obama to demonstrate his convictions as a Nobel Peace Laureate while fostering bipartisanship and reducing our budget deficit.
This topic deserves prompt and serious attention. Please join me in helping to move it to the forefront of public discussion. I’m praying for a groundswell of support from plowshare conservatives. Now.
