Crotonblog's Roll of Honor: 156 Who Voted Against the Iraq War

November 10, 2006

Four years and one month ago, on October 11, 2002, a crucial vote was taken on a joint resolution that enabled President George W. Bush to wage the unpopular war that we are still fighting in Iraq (news). In the 100-member Senate, 21 Democrats, one Republican and one Independent voted nay on that joint resolution allowing President George W. Bush to go to war with Iraq. In the 435-member House of Representatives, 126 Democrats, six Republicans and one Independent also voted nay on the same resolution.

Had a majority of senators and representatives voted against this irresponsible resolution, more than 2,800 members of our armed forces would be alive today. Follows are the names of the senators and representatives who had the courage to resist the stampede to a foolish war. History has proven them to be right.
