SALISBURY TWP., Pa. -

A number of groups are calling on Congress to cut "Pentagon pork."

The progressive advocacy organization "Keystone Progress" and other groups have delivered a petition to Senator Pat Toomey's office in Salisbury Township.

The groups want Toomey and other lawmakers to tackle the sequester by taking on the Pentagon.

They say cuts should be made in wasteful areas like the F-35 fighter and nuclear weapons instead of human services.
