Yes the spending bill did get passed but our team did good, team liberal. Here's some stuff you be proud of. 226 Democrats voted in the bill 140 were against while 86 voted for it that's at whopping 61% of our party caucus thought that was a bad bill and the majority of the Dems that voted for it were moderate Blue Dog(33/44) and New Democrat Coalition members(19/43) while every single member of the liberal progressive caucus(68) and liberals unaffiliated members like Nancy Pelosi voted against this bill including 6 Blue Dog and 17 New Coalition members.

From here till September not only must we put the pressure on our fellow elected Democrats but moderate Republicans as well because until we get enough Republican on board to override a veto it will be much harder to get out of Iraq and they will turn because there all waiting till September to see what happens and those in swing districts see that the war hasn't changed at all they will be shaking in there boots and would be willing to buck the party to crossover and vote with us.

Now i'm not saying that you can't call other Republicans (including your own Republican Congresscritter that's not on the list) to keep the pressure that's cool and go ahead and do so but my good guess the first to crack are the moderates, the one who face tough re-election bids (like Dent, Shays, Wilson and Walsh) those are the ones who could be more sympathetic to our cause. But also while we do that, still keep the heat the Democrats espically the 86 who voted for it.

Remember we didn't get anywhere by sitting on our hands and doing nothing no sire, we got ahead because we got active, we called, we write, we got involved and that what we can do to end this occupation.

Remember be patience and keep the faith and by September we will have the edge, i'm very optimistic about it

Sincerely,
Heath Hatcher
