Members of Congress need to stop taking bribes from “sponsors,” including General Dynamics, which could receive at least $1 billion if President Barack Obama’s proposed weapons sale to Saudi Arabia goes through.

Saudi Arabia has used U.S.-made weapons of mass destruction to mercilessly bomb Yemen. Members of Congress need to do what we hired them to do or we will work to fire them even though they may have corporate “sponsors” to pay for their next elections.

The proposed weapons sale to Saudi Arabia is immoral. Saudi Arabia, a major exporter of terrorism around the world, is an abuser of religious minorities’ rights, of peaceful protesters’ rights, of women’s rights, of children’s rights, of men’s rights, and of LGBT people’s rights. The U.S. continues to support this totalitarian regime.

The U.N. has called the humanitarian situation in Yemen a catastrophe. Yemen is being destroyed, people are starving, thousands of innocents are being killed, and children are being targeted and murdered.

Congress needs to stop taking bribes from General Dynamics and others, and Congress needs to stop this proposed weapons sale to Saudi Arabia. The money made by General Dynamics would likely be used to make more weapons that would likely be used to slaughter more innocent children, women, and men.
