Stop funding the war! Bring them home!
By Progressive Democrats of America
Ask your member of Congress to support legislation to stop funding the deployment of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq
Later this week or next week, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts) will introduce legislation to stop funding the deployment of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq. The bill would allow Defense Department funds to be used only to provide for: the safe and orderly withdrawal of all troops; consultations with other governments, NATO, and the UN regarding international forces; and financial assistance and equipment to either Iraqi security forces and/or international forces. In addition, the bill would not prohibit or restrict non-defense funding to carry out reconstruction in Iraq.
When it comes to the floor, this bill will be stronger than previous legislation. Already signed on: Schakowsky (D-IL), Frank (D-MA), Serrano (D-NY), and Velazquez (D-NY).
Please contact your representative to encourage him/her to become an original co-sponsor for the McGovern Resolution. (Since Rep. McGovern hasn't introduced the bill yet, it doesn't have a number).
