Today’s Action: Repeal the AUMF – vote TODAY in the House

We interrupt impeachment news to let you know that an important vote is happening TODAY which needs your voice: repealing the AUMF.

The United States entered into an endless war on September 14th, 2001. On that day, Congress issued an AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force), which gave then-President Bush the ability to use force against nations, organizations, or people he determined were in any way involved in the September 11th attacks.

With Trump bringing us to the brink of war with Iran earlier this month, we need the AUMF repealed as fast as possible.

The vote in the House is TODAY. Call or email your Representative and demand they repeal the 2002 AUMF.

Presidents Bush and Obama used the AUMF at least 37 times in 14 countries to justify military force, often against groups that did not even exist on September 11th. Trump is using AUMF to keep troops in Syria and Iraq indefinitely – also uninvolved in the 9/11 attacks.

And now, Iran. When President Trump betrayed the world by reneging on America’s commitment to the Iran nuclear deal, global onlookers wondered what options were left besides war. The assassination of Iran’s military leader, General Qasem Soleimani, is itself being called an act of war by allies and adversaries alike. And yet, while the Constitution gives Congress (NOT the president) the power to declare war, the highest ranking Congressional Democrats were not even aware of the plan to assassinate Soleimani, due to Trump’s exploitation of the Bush era AUMF.

The first step to stopping endless war is to repeal the AUMF.

The House votes TODAY. Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and urge them to repeal the AUMF.
