The Reid/Feingold bill in the Senate, written to cut funding for Iraq, was defeated on Wednesday 67-29. That sounds like a lot, and it is, but at least a majority of Senate Democrats voted for the bill. This includes our two New York senators (pro-war, both of them) and presidential contenders (including Hillary and Barack Obama). This is a positive step, but a lot of work still needs to be done. Call our senators and thank them.
