  Along strict party lines, in April 2015 Congress adopted a budget resolution that announced a ten-year plan to dismantle all federal programs that benefit the 99%: the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit, Medicaid, Food Stamps, subsidized housing, aid for college attendance, and many more, including Medicare itself. It also calls for big tax breaks for the rich, such as abolishing the estate tax, and sustaining a high level of spending for war and preparation for war.

We solicited submissions from veterans of different eras and received amazing and deeply moving material. People wrote from places of deep pain and shared memories that, in some...

Good-Bye Peg – We’ll Miss You.

Posted by on Dec 23, 2015 in Action for Peaceful Tomorrows, CALC News, Peace | 0 comments

By Michael Carrigan. My dear friend, fellow activist, and mentor Peg Morton passed away on Saturday, after a full and inspiring 85 years. She was an activist extraordinaire.
