Subject: Food for wounded troops, part II
On September 25th, we told you about legislation that would stop the U.S. government's practice of charging wounded troops for food while they recover in hospitals. The legislation is H.R. 2988, and as of today it has 238 cosponsors. H.R. 2988 is scheduled for a vote by the U.S. House tomorrow late afternoon.
Congress is considering President Bush's request to spend billions of dollars to reconstruct Iraq including $153 million for landfills and 40 garbage trucks at $50,000 each; $400 million for two new prisons at $50,000 per bed; $100 million to restore the Euphrates River and the Hawizeh Marsh; $9 million for postal information architecture and Zip codes; and $50 million for buildings, equipment and vehicles for Iraq's traffic police. We think Congress should first feed America's wounded troops.
Urge your U.S. representative to vote "Yes" on H.R. 2988 tomorrow. To send your message, go to here.
We will post the vote tally on our Web site so you can see how your representative voted.
