SENATE

GEORGIA

Rev. Raphael Warnock (D-GA-Senate)

Rev. Raphael Warnock has stepped into the former pulpit of Martin Luther King Jr. and evokes his worldview around peace and justice issues: “Dr. King talked about war and some are beating the drums of war even tonight. Pray for our nation, but as you think about the geopolitical situation, let us resist the demons of militarism that disturb our domestic situation.”

CALIFORNIA

Kevin Mullin (D-CA-15)

“When millions are homeless, living paycheck to paycheck, and without affordable healthcare, the current over inflation of the Pentagon budget during a time of peace needs to be addressed. Increasing funding for education, healthcare, infrastructure, and decreasing the bloated Pentagon budget will be a top priority for me in Congress. Diplomacy must come first. Our country must continue to engage in the world by elevating diplomacy and building multinational coalitions to address global challenges. The United States spends 13 times more on the military than on diplomacy. We need to rebuild the State Department, end forever wars, draw down our military engagement, and enable local partners.”

Kylie Taitano (D-CA-50)

“As the need to prevent climate change disasters has become alarmingly urgent, it is illogical that this year Congress voted to increase the military budget by $30 billion, an amount that exceeds the entire budget of the Environmental Protection Agency. Preventing climate disasters will require a significant reduction in the operations of the U.S. Military, which is notably a bigger polluter than as many as 140 countries.”

FLORIDA

Maxwell Alejandro Frost (D-FL-10)

“All around, military spending is too high and there are many individual programs that tax-payers fund too highly and don’t reap any benefits. It is important that the United States invests in research of universal COVID-19 cures and vaccines that can be shared with the entire world before spending more money on lethal and unnecessary weapons. How we use our money shows where our priorities are, our exuberant pentagon spending keeps us from truly taking care of our people.”

Marie Newman (D-IL-06)

We spend billions upon billions of our taxpayer dollars each year on defense spending while millions of Americans struggle to afford housing, child care, education, and more. While the ability to guarantee the safety and security of our country is important, it is appalling that our decades of interventions overseas have left millions of people worldwide without safety, stability, and self-determination.”

Kina Collins (D-IL-07)

“It’s a problem when our foreign policy is rooted more in war than diplomacy with a Pentagon budget that outspends most other federal agencies combined. We’re facing crises domestically that deserve the investment of our federal government – from housing and education to jobs and healthcare – we should be cutting the DoD budget and reinvesting those dollars into the American people.”

Junaid Ahmed (D-IL-08)

“A large part of the DOD’s budget goes towards defense contractors, not national security or readiness. These same defense contractors go on spending sprees at the end of every year, putting billions in taxpayer money to waste. I support…reduc[ing] the Pentagon budget by 10% [and] ending wasteful defense contracts and cutting spending on decades-old, obsolete weapons. I also support canceling purchases of additional weapons of war, including bomber jets and additional nuclear weapons and missiles, and ending the Space Force.”

Donna Edwards (D-MD-04)

Donna Edwards is a stalwart champion for peace and justice in foreign policy. She values international institutions to resolve conflicts through diplomacy. She supports rebuilding the nation’s diplomatic corps that was hollowed out by former President Trump.

MASSACHUSETTS

Ayanna Pressley (D-MA-07)

Ayanna Pressley knows that more Pentagon spending will not provide true security; we must invest in human needs: “In the midst of these overlapping crises of coronavirus, economic hardship and police violence, Congress must take every opportunity to advance necessary changes that protect the most vulnerable communities both at home and abroad.”

Dan Kildee (D-MI-08)

“A President’s most solemn duty is to make a decision as to whether to send young Americans into harm’s way…It is long past time for Congress to exercise its required responsibility under the constitution and debate and pass an updated authorization for the use of military force in Afghanistan and the other conflicts around the world where Americans are engaged in combat.”

Andy Levin (D-MI-11)

“We need to end the wars and the waste that have cost Americans trillions without making us safer. My number one priority—during this pandemic and throughout my tenure in the House—is to raise the standard of living for the working people of Macomb and Oakland Counties. To do that, we must invest in solutions to the urgent problems facing working families today: safer, greener infrastructure; more affordable health care; well-funded schools; and more.”

Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-12)

“My residents sent me to Washington to be a fierce defender of their priorities and fight to enact policies that would make a meaningful difference in their lives. This bill does not meet that standard and is a $768-billion missed opportunity to address my residents’ priorities. I support—and have since my first day in office—the long-overdue dismantling of our country’s military-industrial complex so that we can finally put a stop to forever wars and reinvest into providing our communities with the resources they need and deserve.”

MINNESOTA

Ilhan Omar (D-MN-05)

“Now is not the time to spend billions of dollars to bolster our defense budget while millions of Americans remain housing and food insecure. I am shocked that this Congress continues to spend over $700 billion on wasteful weapons contracts and Pentagon waste, and then turns around and calls for cuts to programs that help the poor, the elderly and the sick. We should be investing in the American people, not in weapons manufacturers.”

Imani Oakley (D-NJ-10)

“We need to dramatically reduce military and weapons spending. The first thing I would do to reign in military spending would be to hold the Pentagon accountable to their budget. We must demand stricter oversight in the Pentagon’s spending and scrap their needless or failed projects. These funds will be better spent improving the lives of everyday people with programs like Medicare for All, free public college, and student loan forgiveness.”

NEW YORK

Brittany Ramos DeBarros (D-NY-11)

“The United States has handed over the keys to our foreign policy decisions to for-profit corporations for far too long. The majority of the Department of Defenses budget is focused on handing money to corporate contractors who are only concerned with their bottom line. In a scheme that can only be described as war-profiteering, the defense industry spends significant resources lobbying and donating to Congress in order to secure contracts and prolong never-ending wars while profiting off of death and destruction.”

Rana Abdelhamid (D-NY-12)

“As an international human rights activist, my priority would be to ensure that our foreign policy is rooted in human rights and justice, and not imperialist expansion. My priority is to end the forever wars and prioritize peace and diplomacy. We need to take a hard look at whether the aid we provide to other countries is aligned with our values – When America gave Saudi Arabia billions in weapons, we silently watched the civilian death toll of their vicious bombing campaign in Yemen rise. We must use our diplomatic and trade relations leverage with other countries to encourage collective liberation, reduce our overall military spending, and provide the care our veterans deserve.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14)

“During a time when our country is withdrawing from foreign wars, when COVID 19 and its fallout is one of the greatest threats that we face, when record levels of unemployment, housing and healthcare crises are among us, the United States should be reducing its military spending by at least 10% and prioritize the very needs of our communities here at home.”

Odessa Kelly (D-TN-07)

“I believe that our foreign policy should be rooted in diplomacy above all else – especially after we’ve seen decades of endless wars and their failures. Cutting the defense budget and targeting things like new spending on nuclear weapons signals to the American people that their needs at home are more important than the profits of defense contractors who lobby for bottomless Pentagon budgets.”
