Andrews Amendment on Iran Fails
Not a good day for the good guys. An amendment to block funds authorized for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to be used in a military strike on Iran failed 216-202. 29 Democrats crossed the aisle to ensure its defeat.
Got that? 29 Democrats think it's OK for money appropriated by Congress for specific actions in Iraq and Afghanistan to be shuttled over to attacking Iran. That's a violation of statute on its face, but to 29 Democrats, no problem. They are:
Carney (I hope we lose this seat in PA, honestly)
Klein (FL) (bit of a surprise)
Mitchell (another fake progressive in Arizona)
Murtha (Whoa! I would guess that he doesn't think this is necessary, but extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. Jack made a mistake.)
Shame on them. The public is overwhelmingly against any attack on Iran and so is the military. This vote enables George Bush.
