Ten Consequences of a "YES" Vote on the Iraq Supplemental

From the office of Congressman Dennis Kucinich

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 22) - Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) gave the following speech on the floor of the House of Representatives today:

Let's speak of the consequences of a "Yes" vote on the Iraq supplemental.

10 Consequences of A "YES" Vote

Keep the war going through the end of President Bush's term;
Provide money to fuel an attack on Iran;
Force the privatization of Iraqi oil;
Escalate the insurgency;
Increase the number of troop causalities in the middle of a civil war;
Increase the number of civilian causalities;
Create a demand for more troops;
Enforce cutbacks of the agenda of many in Congress because money that could be used for schools, healthcare, seniors and the environment would continue to be spent for war;
Forces the destabilization of the Middle East;
Erodes the public's confidence in Congress.

"It is time to end the war, to bring the troops home, to use the money that is in the pipeline to bring the troops home and to set in place a parallel process to stabilize Iraq.

"That is what HR 1234 is about. I urge its consideration and support by members of Congress."
