Mike Rogers voted against HR 1591 today, a spending bill with an Iraq exit deadline.
The House of Representatives on Friday voted 218-212 to approve a spending bill that includes a firm deadline -- August 31, 2008 -- for combat troops to leave Iraq.
A solid majority of Americans – six in ten – now favor a timetable to withdraw troops from Iraq by the end of 2008.
Once again, Mike Rogers has chosen to support George Bush's disastrous war. A war that Rep. Rogers' campaign financiers have profited handsomely from. Apparently loyalty to Bush, and the corporate PACs that helped put him in office, is more important than the will of the people.
Our men and women in uniform, and 8th district voters, deserve better.
