H.R. 2206

Monday, 2007-05-28; 04:06:00

This Thursday, the Congress of the United States approved H.R. 2206, the "U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act" of 2007. This law permits the war in Iraq to continue, and there isn't one date for when the United States has to get out of Iraq. Congress renounced the "power of the purse", and gave President Bush everything he wanted.

If the war in Iraq is an important cause for you, here I found all the votes of the new Democratic senators and representatives of the 110th Congress, who were elected because of their opinions on the war. But, no surprise, the majority voted for this law. If these senators or representatives are your own, give them a call on the telephone. (My representative, Anna Eshoo, and one of my senators, Barbara Boxer, voted against H.R. 2206. Dianne Feinstein voted for H.R. 2206. Today, I tried to call Feinstein in Washington D.C. and also in San Francisco, but the office in Washington didn't accept messages, and the office in San Francisco accepted messages but not at this time, because there were too many in the answering machine -- it was full.)

You can see all of the votes of the Senate here, and all of the votes of the House here. I found from where the senators and representatives come from the New York Times' map of the 2006 election.
