Ask Speaker Pelosi to take a vote to "defund" the war or resign as Speaker of the House
Petition Background (Preamble):
“I wish the speaker had all the power you just describe. I certainly could do that. That doesn't bar the minority from bringing up a funding resolution. They have their parliamentary prerogative as well.
So what we have done is to send bills that limit the mission, to limit the time there, to redeploy the troops. And last week, I believe, was a turning point in the congressional debate on Iraq. I think we changed it going in by putting a bill on the president's desk.
Since May until now, we haven't been able to put something on the president's desk.”
We want her to stop making excuses about why there is no vote on (defunding) stopping the war. We want Speaker Pelosi to step up and do what she failed to do for 9 months.
