Upside-Down Bus Tour Brings Budget Message to NH

June 7, 2007


If you see a yellow school bus with another bus welded upside-down on top of it, you're not just seeing things. It's the Topsy-Turvy Bus, and it's cruising New Hampshire roads as part of a cross-country tour that started last month in California. Ice-cream baron Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's says he had it built to make a point about federal spending.

"The central message of the Topsy-Turvy bus is that U.S. budget priorities are upside down, they're topsy-turvy."

Cohen now heads the national group, Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities. The group says that the United States is still spending $20 billion a year on nuclear weapons, and a total of $60 billion on cold war weapons systems that don't protect the nation against current threats like terrorism.

Rather than pouring tax money into outdated weapons, Cohen said, the government could improve national security by focusing on domestic issues.

"We'd like to see that money going into education, energy independence, health care, our schools, and some deficit reduction."
