I received an email from my Congressional Representative, Earl Blumenauer, today, and was pleased to read that he’s introduced a redeployment of our troops, starting with the National Guard, this year. The proposal is HR 4983, and aims to start bringing our troops home. As we saw with Katrina, we are undermanned here in the US, since Bush has sent our National Guard troops to Iraq.
Good job, Earl! I’m proud to know you represent me!
