SENATOR SCOTT BROWN:
THE PEOPLE OF MASSACHUSETTS
WANT YOU TO HELP PREVENT
Later this year, the US Senate will be asked to vote on two treaties that are critically important to US national security. The new START treaty with Russia will reduce the size of both nuclear arsenals and decrease the number of nuclear weapons targeted on the cities of both countries. The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) will outlaw nuclear test explosions worldwide and make it harder for more states to acquire or improve their nuclear weapons and for nonstate actors to acquire them.
These treaties have broad support among Democratic and Republican defense experts, but some politicians in the Senate are opposing these treaties. No one should be playing partisan politics with our national security and the survival of humanity.
Senator Brown, you have indicated to us, the citizens of Massachusetts, that you will be an independent voice in the Senate. There is no better way for you to demonstrate your promised independence than by pledging now to vote for these treaties, showing your colleagues in the Senate that you will put the future of human life and your constituents’ wishes ahead of any potential partisan gain.
Call Senator Brown at 202-224-4543 and ask him to support the new START.
