The ‘Stop Arming Terrorists’ Bill would prevent US funding terrrorists

Overthrowing the Syrian government has not been a goal that the US congress or US people have voted for directly. However our government has been supporting extremist groups covertly through aid to other nations or moderate groups who do support ISIS and other terrorist groups.  Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is an Iraq war veteran and an Army Captain who has recently visited Syria on a peace mission. She has submitted a bill to Congress that would prevent US government agencies from providing funds or equipment to terrorist groups. The “Stop Arming Terrorists” Bill will need bipartisan support.

Phone calls to your federal congressional representatives can help show that their is constituent support for or against a bill. The AFL-CIO has set up a hotline that directs your call to your congressperson’s phone with the goal of sharing your support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – 1-888-865-8089. I mentioned my support for both the ACA and the Stop Arming Terrorists Bill. [Re the ACA, and re a proposed change to the ACA in Minnesota]
