Protest Against Rep. Nancy Pelosi's Continuous Funding of the War in Iraq Saturday, January 14, 2006 9:30am Marina Middle School Auditorium 3500 Fillmore Street (between Bay and Chestnut) San Francisco, CA Stand with us as we say, "Nancy, Stop Funding War!" Nancy Pelosi will hold a Town Hall meeting the morning of Saturday January 14th to discuss National Security, meanwhile we'll be outside protesting her continuous support for a military war chest. While she has personally supported Rep. John Murtha's call for withdrawal from the ground war, she explicitly refuses to use her power as house minority leader to move the Democratic Party Caucus towards supporting even Murtha's resolution; she will not support HR 4232, the bill introduced by Representative James McGovern, to prohibit the use of funds to deploy United States Armed Forces to Iraq. Nancy Pelosi consistently votes to spend billions of dollars per year on the war in Iraq while vital public services are being cut at home! * Nancy's record: 1) June 2002: Pelosi voted YES on HR 5010 - Vote to pass a bill that would provide $355.4 billion in appropriations for the Defense Department for fiscal year 2003. Highlights: $71.5 billion for procurement of aircraft, missiles, weapons, combat vehicles and shipbuilding - $114.8 billion for Armed Forces operations and maintenance - $7.7 billion for ballistic missile defense 2) June 2004: Pelosi voted YES on HR 4613 - Vote to adopt a Conference Report that would provide appropriate $417.8 billion for the Department of Defense for the fiscal year 2005. Highlights: $25 billion for emergency defense spending for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, $120.6 billion for military operations and equipment maintenance, $77.4 billion for the procurement of new weapons 3) March 2005: Pelosi voted YES on HR 1268 - $81.4 billion emergency supplemental appropriations for Defense Department, war on terrorism, tsunami relief and other programs for fiscal year 2005.
