The House just passed the Iraq “emergency” supplement appropriations bill. The Senate votes tomorrow, I believe.
Speaker Pelosi: Iraq Accountability Act Conference Report
Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
â€œThis is the seventh emergency appropriations bill the Congress has had to pass to make up for the Presidentâ€™s failure. Seven emergencies. What is the surprise? Why arenâ€™t they understanding the cost of this war in lives, in health? In reputation, in dollars, and the readiness of our military?â€
Update: Here’s the roll call. Dems voting no were Barrow, Boren, Davis (Lincoln), Kucinich, Lee, Lewis (John), McNulty, Michaud, Marshall, Matheson, Taylor, Woolsey, and Waters. Republicans voting yes were Jones and Gilchrest.
