Feingold-Reid Amendment to Stop the War Defeated

Brian Zick

McJoan at dailykos reports: The Feingold-Reid Amendment failed this morning, 29-67. Twenty-nine of our Democratic Senators does comprise a majority of the majority party, and is a significant bump from the 11 senators who are actual cosponsors of the bill. It also sent the strong message that many Dems, including the presidential contenders, endorse the idea of cutting funding in principle. But the result means that we still have a lot of work to do. (…) Here are the Senators who voted no on Reid-Feingold today. Give them a call if they represent you and ask them to reconsider. If your Democratic Senator is NOT on this list, call them and thank them for their vote, and ask them to go the extra mile and cosponsor Feingold-Reid, because we'll see it again. Baucus (D-MT) Bayh (D-IN) Bingaman (D-NM) Carper (D-DE) Casey (D-PA) Conrad (D-ND) Dorgan (D-ND) Landrieu (D-LA) Levin (D-MI) Lincoln (D-AR) McCaskill (D-MO) Nelson (D-FL) Nelson (D-NE) Pryor (D-AR) Reed (D-RI) Rockefeller (D-WV) Salazar (D-CO) Tester (D-MT) Webb (D-VA) The roll call is posted here.
