House Set to Debate Iraq Today

The House will today spend 10 hours debating a resolution regarding the War on Terror. You can read the resolution here.

The Post covers the debate here, and notes that the resolution cannot be amended - simply voted up or down. Bet on 'up.' The Post piece highlights the Republican divisions on this issue, and features an amusing quote from Ray LaHood, saying it is a dumb idea to debate the resolution. No word on whether he has expressed this view to Wayne Gilchrest and several others, who joined with Democrats to force this debate.

And while the Democrats forced this debate in the hope of political gain, it looks like they may wind up more divided than the GOP (next post).

Back to the top.
