Can Congress grow a spine?

We're at a decisive moment in our nation's history. Can our Democratic leaders in Congress step up to the plate and begin to cut back substantially the huge amounts of money they're being asked to pour down the drain in Iraq? I understand Bush and his allies can exert enormous pressure, yet polls show the majority of Americans want these cuts. We'll be watching closely to see who tries to honor the wishes of those who voted them into office! I for one will be very disappointed if Representatives succumb to the temptation to tread water until the fall elections. A real fight over war-funding would only help their chances of winning re-election.
