No Funds for War with Iran!

By Hassan El-Tayyab, June 27, 2020

The United States and Iran are moving closer to war every day. While claiming a desire to end endless war, the administration has rapidly escalated tensions between our two countries, increasing the risk of accidents and miscalculations. Congress must use its power of the purse to prohibit unauthorized war with Iran.

The good news is there is growing bipartisan support in the House and Senate to prevent another disastrous war in the Middle East.

Earlier this year, both chambers in Congress voted with bipartisan support to pass the Iran War Powers Resolution. President Trump vetoed that bill, but your member of Congress has another chance to stop this march to war by voting to attach an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to prohibit funding for military action against Iran without congressional authorization.

Act now: Urge your Representative to vote to prevent war with Iran in the FY2021 NDAA.
