Schneider: Dems try to have it both ways with Iraq vote
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Democrats are trying to have it both ways on the Iraq funding vote. It will be interesting to see if they can do that.
Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wisconsin, accused his fellow members of Congress of not following the will of the American people, which is to get out of Iraq.
Iraq war opponents say it's a sell-out to vote for a bill that continues funding for the war without a timeline for withdrawal.
"We basically see a cave-in by many members of Congress, Republicans and many Democrats, who know that the message from the American people was to get us out of Iraq." Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wisconsin, said.
