You may want to consider using this factsheet to contrast the enormous amount of money it will cost your state to go to war with your state's fiscal crisis and budget cuts. Can your state afford to spend hundreds of millions, or billions, of dollars to fight this war? Or will your tax dollars provide more security by addressing the millions of people who have no health insurance, whose schools are falling apart, who can't find the training to get out of low-wage jobs?
Other possibilities: write an op-ed or letter to the editor, talk to your elected officials. Circulate the factsheets to your local chapters and groups. Post the link on your website. Inform the public!
Please check out our website at www.nationalpriorities.org for additional resources from NPP. For more data on needs in your state, see our database at www.nationalpriorities.org/database. To sign-on to receive our monthly email budget updates or notice of our recent releases, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this email to anyone who may be interested in finding out about the cost of war in Iraq to their state.
Thank you and good luck (to us all!) in your efforts.
