It's bad enough that President Bush signed an agreement for U.S. taxpayers to give Israel $30 billion
in weapons from 2009 to 2018.
To make matters worse, last month in Jerusalem, President Obama pledged to extend U.S. taxpayer-subsidized weapons to Israel even longer. One report suggested that Obama wants to give Israel as much as $40 billion
in taxpayer-financed weapons through 2028. 
This is outrageous, especially as the budget sequestration means that patients on Medicare are getting denied cancer-treatment drugs. How can it be possible that we would have money to afford to arm Israel to oppress Palestinians, yet not have money to help seniors fight cancer?
Please take a minute today--Tax Day
--to sign our petition to President Obama calling on him not to negotiate for more taxpayer-funded weapons for Israel.
