Meeting in Des Moines: Ask Rep. Boswell to stop funding the war in Afghanistan.

Join us Wednesday,
June 8.
RSVP!

Dear Friend,

In the face of brutal cuts to basic government services, it's unconscionable that we are spending hundreds of millions of dollars each day on the continued occupation of Afghanistan.

Millions of Americans are hurting from the economic crisis we're in, and our government is saying our country is too broke to help them. But while we're cutting back on services for children and the elderly, the sick and the poor, and anything that helps the middle class stay afloat, we're simultaneously spending over $110 billion a year on the unwinnable war in Afghanistan.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee has introduced a bill, the "Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act" (H.R. 780), which would prohibit the government from spending money to continue the war. Instead, money could only be used for the safe and orderly withdrawal of our forces.1

Your member of Congress, Rep. Leonard Boswell, has not yet co-sponsored the bill. So we've set up a meeting at Rep. Boswell's office so that you can ask that Rep. Boswell do just that.

RSVP to join the meeting with Rep. Boswell's staff to ask Rep. Boswell to co-sponsor the Lee Bill and stop funding the war in Afghanistan.

When: Wednesday June 8, 2:00 pm
Where: Des Moines, IA (full location after RSVP)
Why: Meet with Rep. Boswell's staff to stop funding the war in Afghanistan.

President Obama has pledged to start bringing troops home in July, but we don't yet know the size and scope of that withdrawal. And we've already seen hawks agitating for the withdrawal to be minimal.

The only sure-fire way to end the war in Afghanistan is for Congress to stop funding an endless occupation.

The public increasingly wants to see the war come to an end. Already two-thirds of Americans think it's no longer worth fighting.

It's time to bring our troops home and end the occupation. Meeting with Rep. Boswell's staff and urging your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Lee Bill is one of the most important steps you can take to make sure that happens.

We'll make it easy for you and provide you all the materials you need.
