Dear Friend,

There's no question that the decision to go into - and stay in - Iraq has cost 
us. But how much?
 
According to budget experts, Floridians paid $7.5 billion for the war in 2007 
alone.  That's $7.5 billion that could have paid for better schools, health 
care, affordable housing and initiatives to kick our addiction to oil.
 
The Bush Administration and its allies in Congress ? including some members of 
the Florida Congressional delegation ? want to invest even more.
 
Please take a moment to send a message to the Florida Congressional Delegation, 
urging them to stand up for working families here in Florida, instead of siding 
with George Bush and Dick Cheney in throwing more money at an endless war.
