Senate Rejects House Bill on War FundingThe Senate has rejected a Democratic measure that ties a troop-withdrawal requirement to new funds to pay for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The measure failed by a 53-45 vote.
Okay. It's not that Congress has done nothing the last few days, it's just that they've done things that may not become law. A Democratic-led Congress acted on everything from the war in Iraq to the country's subprime mortgage crisis. But much of that faces veto threats from President Bush.
