GOV, Dems vote to fund Iraq War with conditions

Today the House Democrats passed a supplemental appropriation bill requested by President Bush to fund continuing the Iraq occupation. However, the Democrats attached some condition. The bill calls for withdrawing troops from Iraq by September, 2008. And President Bush must certify that progress is being made on the ground in Iraq. President Bush has promised to veto the legislation.

Associated Press (Anne Flaherty)
"The American people have lost faith in the president's conduct of this war," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. "The American people see the reality of the war, the president does not."

Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) was elected to Congress in November. He is an Iraq War veteran.
