Austin, TX — Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is encouraging Americans to thank specific lawmakers for taking a principled stance in favor of Congress playing a co-equal role in foreign policy. The campaign is an effort to commend the bipartisan effort to repeal the 2002 AUMF amendment and highlight lawmakers by name, applauding them for taking a principled stance in favor of ending endless wars.
One of the lawmakers CVA is encouraging Americans to thank is Congressman Chip Roy who is running for reelection in Texas’ 21st Congressional District.
CVA Senior Advisor, Dan Caldwell, had this to say about the effort:
“After almost two decades of fighting, Americans are tired of endless wars in the Middle East that aren’t making us safer. Repealing the outdated 2002 AUMF – originally passed to authorize the disastrous invasion of Iraq- is a critical step toward reasserting Congress’ proper role in shaping American foreign policy. We applaud the principled leadership of those members who voted to reclaim their Constitutionally-mandated responsibilities, and value their willingness to push back against those who would impede this crucial progress. CVA stands ready and will continue to support the positions of those who stand with us to rethink foreign policy and put an end to endless wars.”
The members selected for this effort were chosen for their willingness to challenge the status quo and work across the aisle to support bipartisan efforts to advance a better foreign policy for all Americans.
