Support McGovern-Jones-Lee: Congress Must Vote on War

Stand with Jim McGovern, Walter Jones and Barbara Lee in challenging an endless, unauthorized war in the Middle East.

Why is this important?

While America has dropped thousands of bombs, deployed 3,500 troops, and spent billions of dollars in our latest war in Iraq and Syria, Congress has failed to perform its basic constitutional responsibility to debate and vote on the war.

Reps. Jim McGovern (D-MA), Walter Jones (R-NC), and Barbara Lee (D-CA) are standing up to demand that Congress do its job. Invoking a key provision of the 1973 War Powers Resolution, they have introduced a privileged resolution, H.Con.Res.55, which would force the House of Representatives to debate and vote on the war.

If Congress continues to shirk its constitutional duty to debate and vote on the war, the McGovern-Jones-Lee Resolution would bring our troops home. However one feels about the latest war in the Middle East, we should all agree that it is long past time for Congress to do its constitutional duty and debate and vote on the war.

Urge your representative to support McGovern, Jones, and Lee in opposing endless and unauthorized war by signing our petition.
