Thank you 85 Dem and 8 Repub Congress Members: End the War in Afghanistan
Dennis Kucinich's resolution to end the US War on Afghanistan failed today, but gained more votes in the House than previous similar resolutions.
The vote was 321 - 93 with the freshman class of Republican tea partiers failing miserably (zero votes.)
The nine Repubs who joined 84 Dems. in rejecting war were:
Ron Paul of Texas
Timothy V. Johnson of Illinois
John Campbell of Irvine, CA
Dana Rohrabacher of Huntington Beach, CA
Jason Chaffetz of Utah
Howard Coble of North Carolina
John J. Duncan Jr. of Tennessee
Walter B. Jones of North Carolina.
99 Dems. voted with the President to continue the war.
Ron Paul made a clever NPR joke at the Republican base's expense and Dennis drove home the truth of the matter:
Seek Peace and Pursue it
בקש שלום ורדפהו
Busca la paz y síguela
