Nuclear Cliff


I want to thank Rep. Lois Capps for signing on to Rep. Ed Markey‘s letter asking that continued spending on nuclear arms be considered among weapons budgetary cuts to avoid the “fiscal cliff.”

With all the things in our country that are in need of attention and support, adding to or replacing our most devastating and universally dangerous weapons of mass destruction seems like the last place to spend money at this time.

Thank you for all you’re doing to make our nation and world a better and healthier place to live.
