Letter – Oppose 2018 Nuclear Posture Review

Please join us in opposing the approach taken in the administration’s
2018 Nuclear Posture Review. If implemented, the policies contained in this review will likely increase tensions with Russia and other major world powers, while making our country less secure.
Calling for the addition of new weapons and weapons capabilities to our arsenal and expanding the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. national security strategy imposes significant economic burdens and undermines decades of United States leadership to prevent the
use and spread of nuclear weapons.

Keep Earmarks Dead

In the last election, the American people sent Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to Washington to “drain the swamp” and hold government accountable. That is why we were shocked to learn last month that Congressional leaders are considering
the return of earmarks, spending which by definition “circumvents … merit-based or competitive allocation processes.”[1] With trust in government at a historic
