Don't Think Dems Would Cut Off Iraq Funding?

Just a small sample of the recent comments and actions by democrats.

Bruce Braley, Iowa congresssional candidate"I can't do anything to affect this until next January when I would be sitting in congress so I think that once you get consensus from members of the House and Senate that we have to do something to redeploy, then it's a matter of negotiating with the White House to make it happen," Braley says. "That's where the power of the purse string that congress has under the Constitution is what's necessary to make that happen."

Dennis Kucinich (D-OH "You can say no to any more funds for this war! And then we can begin a period of truth and reconciliation about 9/11 and Iraq. Begin the healing of the soul of America."

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA): "Personally, I wouldn't spend another dime [on the war]." (Bob Cusack, "Anxious Dems Eye Power Of The Purse On Iraq," The Hill, 9/26/06)
