House of Representative War Funding Vote

Today the House of Representatives passed a war funding bill without troop withdrawal provisions. The roll call vote was 280 to 142 in favor of the funding. Only one of the Democratic Representatives from Colorado voted against the funding without a time table for withdrawal, Representative Perlmutter. Representative Udall voted for the funding (must be looking ahead to his Senate race). Representative Salazar voted for the funding (he represents one of those mindless conservative districts) The most surprising vote other than Udall is the no show of Representative DeGette, she better have been in the hospital.
