Dear Representative Boozman,

I am writing with an urgent request that you sign on to Barney Frank
and Ron Paul's bipartisan letter to the deficit commission encouraging
that cuts in military spending be on the table in any efforts to reduce
the deficit.

I am concerned that with more than half of the discretionary budget
going to the military, important programs needed by my community--like
housing and education--are being squeezed.

We need to make sure that we aren't squandering scarce resources on
waste and outdated weapons systems instead of investing in our

Please sign Rep. Frank's bipartisan letter and speak out in favor of
significant cuts to wasteful military spending.
