House Supplemental Votes and Rep. McGovern’s Afghanistan Exit Strategy Bill

You can find how your Representative voted by clicking here.

Sources tell me that Chairman Obey will not allow any changes or amendments to the supplemental.  I think it is very important to continue the momentum on McGovern’s bill to get as many original cosponsors as possible and to ask for members to vote no and not support another dime for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.  If your member is already on board, please ask them to help the Congressional Progressive Caucus and McGovern in whipping more cosponsors.

McGovern introduced H.R. 2404 Thursday morning with 73 original cosponsors.  You can click here for current cosponsors:

    Will the real Department of Defense please stand up?
    War is a lose – lose strategy.
