Rep Alan Grayson Says Lobby for No Votes on War $
From Rep. Grayson:
Today, the House is going to take up 'emergency' war money to keep funding the war in Afghanistan.
Originally, the bill contained billions of dollars to keep schools open, and children learning. Admittedly, there were seven dollars for the military-industrial complex for each dollar for our schools. Something is better than nothing, though.
But that deal wasn't good enough for the warmongers. The right-wing in the Senate stripped out money for teachers, because they want a bill that only funds killing and waste abroad.
This is lunacy. Lunacy.
The House needs to vote "no" on more borrowed money for a failed war. Call your member of Congress, right now:
Stop cramming our wealth into the gullet of the military-industrial complex. No more money for the Shiites, the Sunnis and the Kurds. No more money for the Tajiks, the Hazaras and the Pushtuns. Charity begins at home.
Rep. Alan Grayson
