Call now: vote to end the war in Afghanistan

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) is offering an amendment to end the war in Afghanistan, and the Senate could vote very soon.

Please call your senators now and tell them to vote YES on Sen. Merkley’s amendment to end the war in Afghanistan.

Congressional switchboard number: 202-224-3121. Find your senators here.

The New York Times reported this week that General Allen wants to keep more than 60,000 troops in Afghanistan for another year. This plan would contradict President Obama’s promises to continue withdrawal at a steady pace, and only cost more lives on both sides.

There will be pressure on President Obama to give the military whatever it wants. We need to push back and show that the American people and our representatives in Congress want this war over as soon as possible.

Please call your senators now and tell them to vote YES on the Merkley amendment to end the war in Afghanistan. Then, click here to tell me how your calls went.

Thank you.
