National Call-In Day to Demand a Debate on Iraq
Ask for a debate!
Wednesday, April 5
Without even a debate:
And yet, support for keeping the troops in Iraq has plummeted among the American public, the Iraqi people, and the American troops. Despite this, just last week, President Bush admitted that he expects troops to remain in Iraq past the end of his Presidency (January 2009).
Demand that Congress show the American troops, the American people and the Iraqi people the respect they deserve. It is time for a full debate on the war in Iraq. Tell them to sign H.Res.543, the discharge petition.
Find out if your Representative has already signed the petition. If they have, thank them, and ask them to commit to persuading at least one other member to sign the petition.
Ask the legislative director if your Representative will sign the discharge petition. (Usually the staff person will not make a commitment, so ask them to please let you know what the Rep. will do - give them your email address)
Report back on your phone call to firstname.lastname@example.org.
