Democrats plan to Cave on Iraq funding...Again.
Democrats Considering Caving On Iraq War Funding

"Congressional leaders are assembling a $500 billion package to try to resolve an impasse by providing President Bush with unfettered money for the Iraq war in exchange for new spending on popular domestic programs.

If acceptable to lawmakers and the White House, the package to be considered in the House as early as Tuesday would avert the threat of a shutdown of federal agencies and end a dispute that has lasted months and pitted Congressional Democrats against Mr. Bush and his Republican allies."

3. Now worries then, right?
Actually, given the last two years, I had no doubt this would be the case. A couple months from now, bushler will ask for more war money, and they'll give him more. On and on until he leaves office. If he leaves office. For some reason I can't completely explain, I feel like Hillary is the only person he will willingly turn the office over to. But maybe I digress.
