WAND advocates for a reduction in the National Defense Authorization Act levels for FY21



Without access to increased levels of non-defense spending, our spending priorities cannot focus on coronavirus testing, tracing, treatment, cures, and economic assistance and relief. The coronavirus pandemic is the US's greatest adversary, killing more than 70,000 Americans over the past two months- far surpassing the number of casualties during the Vietnam War. The U.S. should consolidate its spending efforts on millions of additional coronavirus tests and tens of thousands of additional needed contact tracers as well as covering treatment costs, developing therapeutics, and distributing future vaccines. Imposing constraints on an unnecessary increase to defense spending will enable the U.S. to respond to its greatest threat yet.
