Votes for a Blank Check in Iraq

45 Republican Senators and Joe Lieberman and 195 Republican members of the House voted to give George Bush a "blank check" in Iraq. They rejected a bill that would have set a goal of a responsible, phased withdrawal from Iraq.

Here are a few of those votes to give George Bush a "blank check" to extend the war in Iraq and keep our troops there indefinitely:
