LLPH urges all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate to vote NO on giving weapons to Syrian rebels in any form of an amendment or legislation. The House is expected to vote on the amendment today, and LLPH will include the vote on the amendment in our scorecard. There are differing reports on the extent to which the Syrian rebels have made a truce with ISIS, but with so many different reports, giving them weapons and training is a terrible idea.
We also strongly oppose the Continuing Resolution for FY 2015 because it includes a renewal of the Export-Import Bank, kicks funding only until December 2014 (which means that a lame duck congress will decide extending funds), and could possibly include the Syria/ISIS Amendment.
We will score both votes in our scorecard and urge a STRONG NO vote!
