Special Joint Session on Iraq sign now

The time is long overdue for a congressional debate on Iraq that is focused primarily on developing a comprehensive plan for an end to the war.

The war is now in its 4th year. Military and civilian deaths, as well as monetary costs have risen to unconscionable levels. Violence has spread to other countries in the Middle East. As the leadership of the majority party in both the Senate and House of Representatives, you have scheduled Congress to adjourn on October 6th. This is 86 days before the end of 2006, and for the House of Representatives it will total less than 100 days at work in our nation's capital. Not only is this a drastic reduction from last year's 141 days, but it will also be the shortest schedule since the 108 days posted by 1948's "do-nothing" Congress. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

Under these circumstances, we do not think it is too much to ask for you to schedule some additional days for a special joint session on Iraq. We believe we speak for the vast majority of our fellow Americans in requesting that this congressional debate takes place as soon as possible THIS YEAR!


[NOTES: 1. When signing your name, please look up and include your ZIP Code + 4. This will help to ensure that the correct Representative and Senators are advised of your support, while allowing you to maintain a much greater degree of privacy than the alternative of listing your home address. 2. Don't be confused by the petition links referring to this year's historically brief congressional work schedule. Some compare days per year, while others double those figures because they count days per two-year Congress. 3.This petition was initiated on September 14, 2006. As of that date, Congress was still scheduled to adjourn on October 6th. To see if the adjournment date has been changed since then, please refer to the Senate and House of Representatives calendars.]
