We Can Stop the War Funding in the House or the Senate, And We Only Need One or the Other

By davidswanson - Posted on 17 May 2010

It looks like the Republicans will vote against the war supplemental, and filibuster it.

Last June in the House, in this situation, we needed 39 Democrats to vote No and got 32. Now this is no longer war funding but escalation funding, and of a less popular war, and with a president who's lost that new car smell, and with the economy in the toilet, and importantly with the experience of last june under our belts. Plus we can get Blue Dogs to vote No too, because of all the spending included. We can stop this bill if we all work together.

A ten year old with Internet access and half an hour of free time can unearth enough credible evidence as to render the official explanation of 9/11 a joke.

So why does the anti-war community continue to ignore this glaring Achilles Heal?

Beats the hell out of me....
