Wars and Teachers: One Bill Or Two?


By davidswanson - Posted on 25 June 2010

The Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee David Obey has stalled the war escalation funding until jobs and schools are funded. Please call and thank him, and ask him to just fund jobs and schools while blocking the war funding permanently. 202-225-3365

If Pelosi produces stand-alone bills, one for the war escalation, and one for useful non-murderous investments, this will mean that:
1. More than 40 Democrats refuse to vote for war even with lipstick applied;
2. Pretending these unrelated matters had to be combined in one bill was for purposes of lipstick;
3. The leadership of the Democratic Party is more closely alligned with Republican members of the House than Democrats when it comes to our biggest public program: war.
