HOUSE CAUCUS TO BUSH: NO MORE FUNDING FOR WAR

In the U.S. House, the anti-war Out of Iraq caucus has announced it will no longer vote for any war funding unless the money is spent exclusively on withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq.

In a letter delivered to President Bush on Thursday, seventy Congressmembers write, "We agree with a clear and growing majority of the American people who are opposed to continued, open-ended U.S. military operations in Iraq, and believe it is unwise and unacceptable for you to continue to unilaterally impose these staggering costs and the soaring debt on Americans currently and for generations to come."

Texas Congressmember Ron Paul was the lone Republican to sign on. Ron Paul is running for president and is a libertarian rather than a neoconservative.
