house Bill H.R. 1670

Does Congress Need to Honor POW/MIA Servicemembers With a Chair in the Capitol?

Argument in favor

A commemorative chair in the Capitol funded by private contributions would be a poignant reminder to visitors of the sacrifices made by POW/MIA servicemembers and their families.

Really no reason not too, it's a small gesture, but a gesture none the less. It doesn't cost the taxpayers a cent so why not.

Argument opposed

Putting a commemorative chair in the Capitol building is an empty gesture that is unlikely to provide much of a reminder about the sacrifices of POW/MIA American servicemembers.

These people made the ultimate sacrifice and endured torture. A chair is not enough.

Instead of wasting money on a chair that will be vandalized by hoodlums go out there and bring them home.

Nothing short of a monument placed adjacent to the Capital building will suffice, so that all who enter will heed the sacrifice made for freedom, and will think twice before arguing further warmongering and imperialism. The chair would be fine as an added bonus, partly because it will be privately funded.
