Loretta Sanchez Votes to Withdraw Troops from Afghanistan

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), the ranking female member on the House Armed Services Committee, today issued the following statement regarding her support for H.Con.Res 248, which would mandate the withdrawal of all U.S. troops by the end of 2010:

“My vote today is consistent with my opposition to the recent troop surge and reflects my belief that our current efforts in Afghanistan are ineffective, and that our troops and resources could be more effectively deployed elsewhere.  It’s time for us to redirect our focus back home, where numerous challenges continue to burden families in my district and across the country. In good conscience, I cannot continue to support an expensive, protracted military conflict at a time when my district has double digit unemployment, skyrocketing foreclosure rates, and other issues that affect the quality of life of the people I represent.”

Good job Loretta, Thanks for standing up for what was right.

    I don’t get it. Does the congresswoman want the troops returned to the USA so they can be used against the voting citizens this November when they will vote to turn-out the democrats in mass.

            Great job, Loretta. Let’s use our tax dollars to rebuild America. Our schools, our electric grid, our highways, our once mighty business base needs a boost more than the corrupt regime of Afghanistan. I wish our Republican president would listen to ordinary people like you have. Keep it up.

    Skyrocketing foreclosure rates……
    Loretta, – tell us why you didn’t support the “Homeowners and Bank Protection Act” of July 25, 2007.
    Loretta, – please view the 30 minute video:

    Loretta, – Did you vote for the “Afghanistan Resolution” back in 2001, – the resolution that started this disaster? This no exit war?
