Iran/Iraq Crisis Message #5

This Thursday the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on two excellent pieces of legislation:

Barbara Lee’s resolution HR 2456 to repeal the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force, which has been used by the last three administration’s to justify military action in several countries. For co-sponsors:

Ro Khanna’s (D-Calif) resolution HR 5543 No War Against Iran Act, which would bar the Pentagon from using funds for military action against Iran, unless specifically authorized by Congress. For list of co-sponsors:

It will be helpful to call your Representative today and ask for a "yes" vote on these resolutions. (Keep in mind that their office is keeping a tally of the number of calls and their distribution.) Especially if your Congressional Rep is a Republican, it is especially important to call.
