MoveOn.Org Hosts Nashville Event Thursday
Nashville Wastes Local Tax Dollars on Unwinnable Civil War
Nashville: On Thursday, August 16, members of MoveOn.org Political Action in Nashville will release a new report, "War at Home" highlighting the cost of the Iraq War to residents in every congressional district including the 5th Congressional District. Since the Iraq war began, Congress has spent almost a half-trillion dollar on an unwinnable civil war. The cost of the war to residents in the 5th Congressional District is $855 million.
Every day the war goes on means more of our hard earned tax dollars are
wasted on an endless religious civil war that cannot be won, said Chris
Lugo, local MoveOn member. In Nashville that money should be spent where
we really need it on our public schools, health care system and public
infrastructure. We have had enough. Rep. Cooper needs to vote in September to
end this war and bring our troops home, concluded Lugo.
After the event, local MoveOn members will deliver the report to Rep. Cooper
at his office in Nashville.
