Hold Democrats' Feet to the Fire

Iraq is in utter chaos. It's a civil war, with American troops caught in the crossfire. The Bush Doctrine of "preemptive war" was morally and strategically stupid, and the dead and wounded are the visible result of his hubris. It's past time for the Democrats running Congress to force Bush to change strategy and bring the troops home.

This war won't end until Congress uses its power of the purse to limit the use of funds to protecting our troops' safety and bringing them home. Non-binding resolutions are not enough. And it's a mistake to continue to let Bush and Cheney have their way.

Last month, the House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution opposing George Bush's plan to escalate American involvement in Iraq. Next up: A vote on funding for the war. Democrats want to take a baby step forward, Working Families is pushing them to do better and do the right thing for our troops.

Tell your U.S. Representative to limit the use of funds to protecting our troops' safety and bringing them home now.
