Embracing national frustration rather than President Bush's plea for patience, Washington state's House Democrats joined their party members in declaring the strategy in Iraq unworkable.
All six House Democrats from Washington voted yes on a 223-201 party-line vote for legislation that would require U.S. troops to begin leaving Iraq within 120 days after the measure becomes law. The state's three Republicans opposed the bill.
Neither Congress nor the country can wait for Bush to change, Murray said. "His stubbornness to recognize what is crumbling around him increases the necessity to put pressure on him," she said.
