Kucinich and Woolsey Write Colleagues Asking for No Votes on War Supplemental
This letter (PDF) was sent to the 51 members of Congress who voted No on the war supplemental on the first go-round, when it was guaranteed to pass. A modified letter is expected to be sent to the broader Democratic caucus. The letter puts the focus back on the war funding, rather than all the side issues, and concludes:
"Voting down the funds for war honors the mandate to end the war in Iraq that was given to this body by the American people in November 2006. Furthermore, defeat of the War Supplemental sends a clear message about U.S. priorities at home and abroad.
"Congress must use the power of the purse to end combat operations. When the War Supplemental conference comes to the Floor for a vote I urge you to continue to vote no."
