Just a quick update on the vote for the war supplemental funding bill.

 

There was rumor that the House might vote today but since the leadership still does not have the votes, the vote has not been scheduled.
According to Democrats.com which is keeping a running head count on likely votes:
 
"All 178 House Republicans plan to vote against the $100 billion Iraq/AfPak War Supplemental to protest $5 billion for the International Monetary Fund. That means 39 Democratic opponents could defeat the bill. 36 Democrats promised to vote no, so we only need 3 more."
 
Only three more votes and the war funding bill can be stopped.
 
Please call your representative in the Congress and urge them to vote "no" on the war supplemental.  Call  202-22....
 
Please take action now.  Defeat of the war funding bill would be a tremendous victory for the anti-war movement and will push the Congress and White House to reconsider their plans and let them know how weak support for the war is in Congress and among the people.
