I wanted to share some breaking news. 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.1
Make no mistake, your efforts were a key factor in this decision. In the past two weeks, you placed over 2,300 calls to House members in targeted districts, demanding they bring a responsible end to the war and then calling for the exact vote result that happened today.
This is the strongest vote by the House since the war began in opposition to the President's war.
But, this is just the first step.
After today, the fight goes to the Senate where we won't have much lead time to generate the same sort of pressure. Sign up to join our Iraq War Rapid response team to get urgent action alerts as the battle over war funding continues.
