Tell Your Representative to Sign the 'Discharge Petition'

Right now, a congressional 'discharge petition' is only 108 signatures short of forcing a vote on a House bill to fully fund all troops in harms way.
Rep. Sam Johnson (R.-Tex.)has introduced H.R. 511 to give our troops the resources they need with no Murtha-like conditional spending strings. A link here on the House Clerk's website shows the members that have signed the petition so far.
Once 218 members sign onto it, Johnson's bill will automatically be brought to the floor for consideration.
