Speak Out: Write Letters To Your Local Papers and Urge Members of Congress to Vote “No” On Supplemental

Posted by Jane Hamsher on June 12th, 2009

Click here for more information about the Afghanistan war.

There won’t be anyone to pick up the phone at congressional offices this weekend, but you can write letters to the editor in time for the Sunday edition, urging members of Congress to vote against the Supplemental Appropriations Act.

Rahm Emanuel is threatening Democratic freshmen if they don’t vote for the bill. We need 39 Democratic votes to defeat it. Already 32 have committed to oppose it. Please write your local paper and urge them to support your member of Congress in voting against the supplemental. (If you don’t know who your member of Congress is, you can look them up here.)

Write letters to the Editor and say “no” to the supplemental

    New Idea. We have all the Doctors, Nurses, Engineers, Heavy Machinery Operators, that we need to really contribute to the rebuilding of Afganstan. Currently they are an occupying force spreading bad will around the area. What would happen if they all, except the MP's, put down their guns and started rebuilding village by destroyed by air village.

    The govt way will most likely mean spending billions to bring our troops home and throw money at the already corrupt contractor and subcontractor system, as described so well by Greenwall at Rethink Afganstan.
