Action Alert: Stop USA from going into another war: Obama Called this a "March to War"!!

If there's ever a bill that should never come up on the floor for a vote, it's Senate Bill 1881. This bill calling for tightened sanctions on Iran would blow up the successful nuclear talks– and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could bring it up for a vote in the Senate any time. President Obama even called it a "march to war"! Tell Senator Reid to STOP THIS BILL!
