HEAD OF CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS SAY "NO" ON WAR SUPPLEMENTAL



 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) voted against the Supplemental Appropriations Act to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She released this statement:

“I cannot support any funding for Iraq that was not dedicated solely for the redeployment of our troops and military contractors. I am also unable to support the open ended military escalation in Afghanistan. We need a better balance between humanitarian and military spending in Afghanistan and we need an exit strategy. The supplemental appropriations bill does not reflect a fundamental shift in direction. Therefore, I cannot support it.”
