Pelosi Gets 218-212 Victory On Iraq August 2008 Timeline - Bush Issues Veto Threat
Nancy Pelosi achieved a 218-212 victory on the House's supplemental appropriation measure today, which calls for a withdrawal by September 2008. Bush has already said he will veto it, using the usual drivel the White House spews. Fine.
We're at the point where the Democrats need to decide if they want to tie the supplemental funding to a timeline now, or have this battle in the fall with the 2008 appropriations bill after the surge has run its course. My favored policy is the latter, but I understand and respect your views to the contrary.
