On July 12, 2007 Democratic leaders engineered a 223-201 passage of legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops to begin within 120 days, and to be completed by April 1, 2008. The measure envisions a limited residual force to train Iraqis, protect U.S. assets and fight Al Qaeda and other terrorists.
The vote generally followed party lines: 219 Democrats and four Republicans in favor, and 191 Republicans and 10 Democrats opposed.

We, the undersigned, call on the United States of America's Congress (both House of Representatives and Senate) to repeal HR 2956 and to prevent withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq.
