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.
Plenty of Republicans are talking the right way on Iraq, expressing disapproval for the President's policy.
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.
But speeches won't end the war, votes will.
Tell Republicans: Stop Obstructing.
