The Iraq War supplemental funding bill has passed the U.S. House by a vote of 280 to 142. All four of Oregon's Democratic members voted against it - David Wu, Earl Blumenauer, Peter DeFazio, and Darlene Hooley. Republican Greg Walden voted in favor.
Update: The supplemental has passed the Senate 80-14. Ron Wyden also votes No. Gordon Smith voted Yes.
This guy is truly unbelievable. Flip. Flop. Flippity-Flop. Let's recap:
SMITH: I, for one, am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal. I cannot support that any more. I believe we need to figure out not just how to leave Iraq but how to fight the War on Terror and to do it right.
Gordon "Have it Both Ways" Smith continues to do the bidding of President Bush.
