Report to Supporters: Turning Promises Into Policy
June 4, 2012 | Report
The 2012 presidential and congressional campaigns will feature two competing visions for America. One party is promoting a nostalgic policy of militarism, climate-change denial and unregulated capitalism. The other party promises to wind down wars, cut military spending, protect the environment and bring greater transparency to financial transactions.
But the promises continue to fall short.
The Center for International Policy takes no stand on elections. But we do take stands on issues, and we will use the campaign to press politicians of both parties to honorably exit Afghanistan, cut military spending and seek diplomatic means to resolve disputes with adversaries.
