Yet another call to end the war...
Congress has reached a fork in the road on the war in Iraq. Do they back down to President Bush and grant endless extensions, or will they use real funding power to send back a binding plan to end the war?
Tell your member not to back down to President Bush and to end the war>>
Congress took the right first step by passing their last funding bill setting a timetable for withdrawing our troops from Iraq. But following Bush's veto, the resolve in Washington has started to fade. Some members of Congress have started talking about reverting back to symbolic deauthorization bills. Others are pushing for so-called temporary extensions that give Bush all the money he needs without ever actually bringing a single troop home.
This country needs real action - Congress using their funding power to pass another binding plan and forcing George Bush to actually end this war.
Only massive, direct public pressure will get Congress to choose the right path. So this week, John Edwards is leading the effort to gather 100,000 voices calling on Congress to stand firm and send back a binding plan to end the war. The campaign has already collected nearly 90,000 signatures and we need 10,000 more before delivering to Congress.
No more extensions. No more delays.
