LEST WE FORGET
On this, the 10th anniversary of the shameful invasion of Iraq, I congratulate the brave 23 U.S. Senators and the 133 members of the House of Representatives who voted against the immoral invasion.
I can vividly recall how my husband and I, along with three of my brothers, were criticized, and our patriotism called into question, because of our opposition to the war.
AKAKA, BINGAMAN, BOXER, BYRD, CHAFFEE, CONRAD, CORZINE, DAYTON, DURBIN, FEINGOLD, B. GRAHAM, INOUYE, JEFFERDS, KENNEDY, LEAHY, LEVIN, MIKULSKI, MURRAY, REED, SARBANES, STABENOW, WELLSTONE, and WYDEN.
Of the 133 House members, these six Representatives from Ohio, also voted AGAINST the war:
SHERROD BROWN, STEPHANIE TUBBS-JONES, MARCY KAPTUR, DENNIS KUCINICH, THOMAS SAWYER, and TED STRICKLAND.
I have always kept the list handy as a reminder, lest we forget!
