Dear Citizens of the United States

The most frustrating thing about this week's congressional debate on Iraq was the group of so-called "moderates"—mostly Republicans, a select few democrats—who criticized the war loudly, but wouldn't support any effort to end it. They know voters want to end the occupation in Iraq, so they say the right things on TV, but when the chips are down, they side with President Bush, assuming voters won't know the difference.

They need to pay a political price for their hypocrisy. If we can make sure they do, we can get them to start voting right and we can break the president's policy of endless war in Iraq.

They're all heading home for a break next week. Can you chip in $1 or just show your support to get emergency ads on the air letting voters know they sided with the president and voted to keep the occupation going indefinitely? Click below to contribute and see a version of one of the ads we'll be running with our partners at Americans United for Change.


This is a tipping point in the debate around Iraq: For the first time since the war started a little over four years ago Congress has passed a deadline to end it. But some members of Congress are trying to have it both ways—criticizing the war and voting to keep it going endlessly. Together, we have to make sure they feel a lot of heat every time they side with the President.

Senators like Collins, Sununu and Coleman are facing a tough election next year. They can't afford to keep siding with the president on his policy of endless war.

With your help, we can get our message across loud and clear: It's time to bring our troops home. [2]

Thanks for all you do,
