Issue Position: Ending the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

Issue Position

By:
Location:

I have long been a passionate opponent of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and in Congress I've fought to stop the wasteful spending and bring our troops home. The $7 billion a month we are spending in Afghanistan can better be spent here in this country, reducing the deficit and creating jobs. Even though Democratic leaders, including the President, urged me to vote for supplemental funding for the Afghanistan war, twice I have said no. In Congress, I led efforts to stop the funding and demand that the Administration present a concrete timeline and plan for withdrawal.
