Afghanistan

This week the House considered H. Con. Res. 248: Directing the President, pursuant to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution, to remove the United States Armed Forces from Afghanistan. I was a co-sponsor of this measure, which called for the removal of troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year. I have been disappointed so far in the Administrationís approach to the war in Afghanistan and strongly believe that it is long past time to bring our men and women in uniform home. This resolution was a way to underscore the concerns that I and many others have and it forced a debate that is long overdue.

I voted YES. H. Con. Res. 248 failed and the entire vote is recorded below:
