Way To Go, Harry!

My Way News - Reid May Move to Cut Iraq War Funds:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday he wants to cut off money for the Iraq war next year, making clear for the first time that Democrats are willing to pull out all the stops to end U.S. involvement.

Reid's new strategy faces an uphill battle because many of his colleagues see yanking funds as a dangerous last resort. The proposal increases the stakes on the debate and marks a new era for the Democratic leadership once reluctant to talk about Congress' power of the purse.

'In the face of the administration's stubborn unwillingness to change course, the Senate has no choice but to force a change of course,' said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who signed on Monday as a co-sponsor of Reid's proposal with Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis.
Now, back that up with some results. You know we want our troops back home. You know this "war" is just a land-grab for oil. You know our troops deserve better. So get it done.
