A rare opportunity just emerged to kill the supplemental appropriations bill funding operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here’s a quick summary of the politics around the legislation. Here’s a shorter version: items attached to the legislation provoked blocs of Republicans and Democrats into opposition. The White House lobbies hard for this legislation, but if you call in to your members right now, you can help kill this bill and force it to come up for debate again…meaning we get more chances to attach items to the legislation demanding swift withdrawal of our forces.
Locate your member of Congress, call them, and tell them:
Vote no on the supplemental appropriations bill.
