Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and its allies are coordinating a
unified phone campaign to get Congress to reject additional Iraq war
funding – the Bush supplemental appropriations request for $93
billion more. With the Democratic leadership signaling weakness and
half-hearted amendments aimed at undermining the escalation but not the
war, the coalition is phoning in a loud and clear message: NO MORE
FUNDING FOR WAR. VOTE NO ON THE SUPPLEMENTAL. BRING OUR TROOPS HOME.
Toll-free number into Congress is 1-888-851-1879.
Points to consider when calling your Senate and Congressional offices:
Most Iraqis – both Sunni and Shia -- want US troops out of their country and most
believe attacks on our troops are justified.
US military force is no solution in Iraq; diplomacy, not war, is the solution.
US public sentiment via the polls in November and in opinion polls expresses a
strong desire for the US to get out.
Congress has the Constitutionally-granted “power of the purse,” and the DUTY
to end the war by cutting off war funding, except what’s needed for the prompt,
safe, orderly withdrawal of all our troops.
The US must NOT build permament military bases in Iraq.
Please take several minutes to call your senators and representative.
The number is 1-888-851-1879.
