Democrats Cave In

You know, you'd think that our elected officials would take the will of the electorate to heart. Republicans were turned out in droves in 2006, mainly because of the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war. But when the chips were down, they caved. Tonight, Congress passed a war funding bill with no troop withdrawal timetable and only token progress report requirements. Nothing that forces any change to the status quo in Iraq.

Senators Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Christopher Dodd, at least, cast votes in opposition to the bill. But what does it matter. Bush now has the money and a carte blanche to squander it, thanks to the spineless Democrats.

Find out how your Representative or Senator voted. If they voted to fund the war without accountability, then it's time you held them accountable!
