Stop $18 Billion More for War

$18 billion more for war.

That’s what’s at stake in a Senate vote this week. Sen. John McCain (AZ) is planning to amend the annual military policy bill to give the Pentagon even more money above the nearly $600 billion already under consideration.

Worse, we have heard that a back-room deal is in the works to keep the vote for $18 billion dollars off the record. This major funding decision could come up for a voice vote — making it impossible to hold senators accountable for their position.

The vote could happen as soon as Thursday. Please call the Capitol Switchboard now at 877-429-0678 and ask to be connected to your senators’ offices.

Here are some talking points to help you make your call:

  • Hi, my name is _______, and I’m a constituent from __________.
  • Please oppose any increases to Pentagon spending in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
  • Sen. McCain’s $18 billion spending increase is too important for a voice vote. Please call for a recorded vote so we know where the senator stands.
  • Thank you.

The Pentagon’s already-bloated budget shouldn’t get another $18 billion through a back-room deal. We hope you’ll call your senators today.
