Tell Congress to stop wasting money on the F-35!

The F-35 is the poster child for what’s wrong in our nation’s capital. At an outrageous cost of $1.5 trillion, it is the most expensive weapon program the world has ever seen. Even worse, it doesn’t work as intended and funnels money away from other priorities needed to fight 21st century threats and strengthen America. Yet Lockheed Martin – maker of the F-35 – is determined to protect its cash cow by pressuring Congress to keep the F-35 alive.

Help us amplify our message to Washington: American taxpayers refuse to spend billions of dollars per year on the most wasteful program in the history of the military.

Already, our voices are being heard in the halls of Congress. Over 105,000 activists have signed our petition on CREDO asking Congress to withdraw funding for the F-35 boondoggle. And, on March 26, the House Armed Services Committee held a budget hearing to question, in part, why the F-35 isn’t living up to its grand promises. You can bet that Lockheed Martin will have its army of lobbyists on the Hill this week fighting to keep its record profits, so it’s critical that Congress hears from you.

Tell Congress: Don’t throw good money after bad. The F-35 is a bad deal for America and needs to be cut.

Once you’ve emailed Congress, you will likely receive a response from your Senators and Representative. Please help us keep track of where Congress stands on the F-35 by reporting back on their responses.
