Republicans are using a filibuster to prevent us from voting on an amendment that could bring the war to a responsible end. They are protecting the President rather than protecting our troops and are denying us an up-or-down vote on the most important issue facing our country.

If Republicans do not allow a vote on Levin-Reed today, I will keep the Senate in session straight through the night. The American people deserve an open and honest debate on this war, and they deserve an up-or-down vote on this amendment to end it.

Plenty of Republicans are talking the right way on Iraq, expressing disapproval for the President's policy.

But speeches won't end the war, votes will.

Tell Republicans: Stop Obstructing.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
