* Supported House Resolution expressing opposition to President Bush's troop escalation plan, which calls for sending 21,500 additional troops to Iraq.

* Supported an emergency war supplemental that set a troop withdrawal deadline, saying American troops will be out of Iraq no later than August 31, 2008. It also stipulated that if the Iraq government does not meet certain benchmarks in the coming months, our troops will be home by the end of 2007. President Bush vetoed this legislation.

* Opposed a final emergency war supplemental in 2007 that did not include a deadline for withdrawal and allowed the status quo to continue in Iraq.

* Supported the War Profiteering Prevention Act, which cracks down on those U.S. contractors who have taken advantage of the war by attempting to defraud the U.S. government by overcharging for goods and services.
