If the storming of U.S. Embassies in over 20 countries last week and the rape and murder of Americans by Muslim terrorists was as upsetting to you as it was for me-
Senator Rand Paul had vowed to SHUT DOWN the U.S. Senate until Majority Leader Harry Reid allowed a vote to stop all American taxpayer handouts to Egypt, Libya & Pakistan (totally more than $4 BILLION per year). He has also insisted on the release of Dr. Shakil Afridi, the courageous doctor who helped lead Seal Team 6 to Osama Bin Laden.
It has worked. Last night Harry Reid called Senator Paul and offered to hold a vote on his bill to cut foreign aid. Now, unbelievably members of his own Republican party are attempting to sabotage the whole thing.
You still have time. I have just learned the vote has been delayed un til Friday night or Saturday -but do it NOW.
Call your U.S. Senators and demand that they allow the vote on Senator Paul’s proposed amendment & vote to de-fund these terrorist countries.
The amendment is S3576. If you live in Hawaii, these are your Senators:
Sen. Daniel Akaka (202) 224-6361
Sen. Daniel Inouye (202) 224-3934
DEMAND they allow a roll call vote to stop foreign aid to Pakistan, Libya, and Egypt.
If you live in another state go here to find your Senator
CALL THEM TODAY! (this is a Senate vote, no need to call Representatives).
If you can afford a generous contribution to help RANDPAC elect more principled constitutional conservatives who will stand with Senator Rand Paul in critical fights like these, please give right away.
