Council for a Livable World launched a campaign today targeting six Republicans leaders in the House and Senate regarding their support for cuts to vital nuclear security programs at the National Nuclear Security Administration.
We targeted House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Thad Cochran. While we were unable to run an ad in House Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen’s district, we are doing some local media work there.
This morning beginning at 6am, in each member’s district or state, right-wing radio talk shows played ads featuring Center Senior Military Fellow Lt. General Robert Gard calling them out for their cuts to programs that keep nuclear weapons material out of the hands of terrorists. The ads can be heard here on the Council’s website.
We’ve also set up a Action Center so that you can e-mail or call your Representatives or Senators and urge them to restore cuts to Non Proliferation Programs!
