Tipping point July 12, 2007 2:39 PM


Dear Friend,


The Iraq debate is reaching a tipping point.

It is up to all of us to make sure it tips towards bringing American troops home from this disastrous mission.

Yesterday, we told you about the DSCC's launch of ads in the states of four GOP senators obstructing change in Iraq. That's only the first step.

Democratic Senators Jack Reed and Carl Levin are sponsoring an amendment next week that would order President Bush to begin drawing down combat troops within 120 days, and end combat by April 30, 2008. We absolutely need you to get behind it.

And the best way to do it is to demand that Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other GOP senators stop hiding behind fear and sloganeering to defend George Bush's surge. That's why I am asking you to sign on to the DSCC's grassroots campaign to demand change in Iraq. The DSCC's ads, combined with your support can help build the momentum we need to get our troops home.

We'll take the thousands of names we gather and deliver them right to McConnell's office to let him know how disgusted the American people are with GOP senators blocking change in Iraq. But we've got to act quickly because this bill will be on the Senate floor next week.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been giving it his all to force change in Iraq. This week marks the fifth time in 2007 alone that Sen. Reid has overseen legislation that would challenge Bush on Iraq and bring our troops home.

But the reality is that with Democrat’s holding a razor thin 51-49 Senate majority, Republicans have done everything and anything to impede progress. You need 60 votes to get a filibuster proof majority in the Senate, and that is why it is so important to up the pressure on McConnell and company to support this legislation.

You can build the momentum to bring our troops home.

Sincerely,

J.B. Poersch
Executive Director, DSCC
