Get Out of Iraq Bill Passes

The Democratic get out of Iraq bill passes. From MSNBC, and here's Skippy, and Taylor Marsh. Thanks Nancy Pelosi.

ignoring a white house veto threat, lawmakers voted 218-212, mostly along party lines, for a $124 billion war spending bill requiring that combat operations cease by sept. 1, 2008 if the iraqi government does not meet certain requirements…

“the american people have lost faith in the president’s conduct of this war,” said house speaker nancy pelosi, d-calif. “the american people see the reality of the war, the president does not.”

before the vote, democratic aides expressed growing confidence of success. four of the bill’s most consistent critics earlier said they had told pelosi that they wouldn't block passage of the bill.
