Iraq,Resolutions and Our Government

   It's been a busy week up in the Capitol. It has been for the House of Representatives anyway as they have spent the entire week debating and working on a resolution against Bush and his war plans.

   Did you know that Senator Joseph R. Biden, a Delaware Democrat who happens to lead the Foreign Relations Committee said the he is working on a repeal of the 2002 war authorization vote hoping to close down the war? 

   When the House resolution passes today, with bipartisan support,  it will be the first congressional message of disapproval over the war in Iraq.

Nancy Pelosi: “I don’t know that the president can completely ignore us. We are the voices of the American people. They were clear in the election that they wanted a new direction, no place more clear than in Iraq.”

   Then we have the Senate coming in on Saturday to do whatever it is that the Senate does which thus far hasn't been a whole lot.

  A Republican official having to work on a weekend day? I'll bet that just sent them all to the medicine cabinet when Sen. Harry Reid made that announcement. Must be a shock to the system when you're not even used to working five days a week yet!

   Got a few Democrats ( Biden, Reid, Murtha, Pelosi, Clinton ) carrying some big sticks this week. Now let us see if they can swing those things and get some results with them.
