Letters to the Editor

It's up to Congress

Please write or call Congress to support Senate Bill 233 and House Resolution 41 to regain congressional control of war spending.

The president gained congressional authority to invade Iraq under false pretenses of protecting us from a non-existent threat. He now asserts that what he was not able to accomplish through "shock and awe" will somehow be accomplished through sacrificing 20,000 more U.S. troops' loyalty to an unlawful engagement and by further bankrupting our children's future to secure Iraq's oil for foreign investment.

The time for Congress to regain control is long overdue.
