No More Money

The House of Representatives just voted 149 to 141 to cut off funding for the war in Iraq. This was followed by votes to put significant restrictions on President Bush's war policy, including a timeline for withdrawal, and creating a new GI Bill to help returning veterans.

100 republican congress-critters voted "present" rather than yes or no on funding. The fear of job loss in the GOP reaching a pretty fevered pitch. (from Open Left)
