· Cut the bloated, wasteful military budget by 25%-50% in addition to the military cuts already scheduled under sequestration. Savings achieved by these cuts should be used to fund critical social programs, including job training and re-employment for former war-industry employees.
· Meet urgent needs at home by fully funding critical social programs and reinvesting in America. Such programs include food stamps, Social Security, improved/expanded Medicare for all, public education including college, affordable housing, mass transit, improved infrastructure and a full employment public jobs program to jump start the green economy, combat climate change, and make wars for oil obsolete.
· Provide further funding for social programs by creating a more progressive income tax and by taxing Wall Street speculation.
