Iraq Enough Already

Ok this Iraq debate is getting old really quick.  Both sides have made their points but its time to put aside differences and get a bill passed.  The senate is going to lead the way and needs to pass a bill without a withdrawal date but with strong benchmarks and sticks that reduce funding if they are not met.  This was what the John Warner bill accomplished (with a majority of Republicans and seven democrats) and a new version needs to be filed and passed ASAP.

The funding is only for four months.  In September additional debate can occur about whether to continue in Iraq and at what level.

I call on Jim Webb to get his fellow democrats inline to pass a compromise Warnerish bill in Iraq so our troops can be funded.
