Don't Use Any More of Our Money

In the coming weeks, Congress will vote on spending $33 billion of your money to send another 30,000 troops, plus many more contractors, to Afghanistan.

Here's a whip list tracking who has already committed to voting No and to publicly lobbying their colleagues to join them:
