Thank David Obey for Stalling War Escalation Funding, Urge Him Never to Let It Through
Dave Obey slows war funding, reports Politico:
House Appropriations Chairman Dave Obey said he will hold off on new Afghanistan war funding until there is some resolution of a long-delayed economic relief bill extending aid to states and the jobless as well as tax breaks for individuals and business.
With a July 4th Pentagon deadline looming, the chairman's new posture is a blow to the White House and more than ever, explicitly links war funding with liberal concerns over domestic priorities.
Thank him and encourage him never to let this war escalation funding through. Holding up the war funding until schools and jobs are funded is fine, but ask Chairman Obey to use the war funding to fund the schools and jobs instead.
Give Dave Obey a quick call right now! (202) 225-3365
UPDATE: Let Obey know that the Wisconsin Democratic Party says stop funding war!
