"Visit Your District, Not Israel" 65.7 Percent of Americans Tell Congress



IRmep Polls, Telling Hard Truths Since 2014
IRmep Poll: 41 House Democrats are now visiting Israel during the Congressional recess on a trip funded by a tax-exempt pro-Israel charity linked to the U.S. Israel lobby group AIPAC. Source: IRmep representative poll of 2,000 American adults through Google Surveys on August 8-10.

Most American adults of voting age believe representatives should visit their congressional districts rather than go to Israel according to a new poll. IRmep Polls surveyed 2,000 American adults about where they believed congressional reps should go during recess.

Junkets to Israel funded by an entity housed within the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a domestically registered lobby and a small number of other Israel lobby groups account for a third of all privately funded congressional trips with an international destination.

Members of Congress participating in the trips are accompanied by AIPAC employees. According to a leaked briefing booklet the trips are designed to present Israel as a militarily vulnerable and valuable ally deserving massive U.S. foreign aid. The program does not include any discussion of Israel’s nuclear weapons program, military occupation of Palestinian territories or meaningful visits with Palestinians representative of those displaced by Israel’s creation.

1. The two aren't mutually exclusive

So long as the House holds the purse strings I want them to see the widest variety of things they spend on.

2. Then they should take their idiot asses to the streets

of LA, San Francisco, Seattle, and go talk to HOMELESS AMERICANS living in the fucking streets.

Funny how the ‘left’ gives a fuck about everyone but our own.
