George Bush & Republican Senators, Obstructionists

House votes Iraq troop withdrawal Bush would veto - 14 Nov 2007 at 10:44pm - WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic-led House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq, defying President George W. Bush by tying the measure to $50 billion in new war funds. By a vote of 218-203, the House sent the controversial plan to the Senate, where it faced an uphill fight as Republicans have vowed to block it. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino called on Congress to send Bush a "clean" emergency funding bill, without withdrawal dates. "If legislation comes to the president in this form, he will certainly veto it," Perino said in a statement after the House vote.
