President Trump’s proposed 2017 budget includes over $60 billion in new defense spending, paid for by gutting a myriad of other federal programs, including food stamps, science and cultural programming.

The National War Tax Resistance Committee offers support and advice to people who conscientiously object to paying their taxes. We have three tax resisters with us now.
