House Refuses to Write a Blank Check for War (Finally!)

I got an email From my Representative, Earl Bluemenauer, explaining that he voted against the latest war funding bill. “That’s nice,” I thought… “Good old Earl.” And it turns out that enough representatives decided to start representing their constituents that the House rejected the latest war funding bill.

There’s a lovely map that can show you just how states voted:

Now, onto the Senate to really put a stop to the war funding.
