The War Supplemental Vote in the House Soon
The U.S. House of Representatives is on the verge of voting on the final war supplemental!
They have passed the rule, but it doesn’t look like they have the votes yet to pass the supplemental. Please inform your representative that you want to see an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His or her phone number may be found here or call the Congressional switchboard directly at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Representative’s office.
ALSO… Please ask your member’s office if they are cosponsors of Rep. Jim McGovern’s request for an exit strategy from Afghanistan (HR 2404). If they are not yet cosponsors, encourage your member to sign onto HR2404 and join Rep. McGovern and other members of Congress to end the war in Afghanistan.
Please post the outcome of you calls to this blog.
We are working with allies inside Congress and outside on getting “no” votes.
Rep. McGovern is my representative here in my state of MA. I called his office to let him know I stand firmly behind his bill for an exit strategy.
Contacted Rep. Doc Hastings, WA State and told him that I opposed any additional funding for war in Iran and Afganistan.
I called McGovern’s office again just to let him know I’m firmly behind his bill.
