Pelosi Funded the War Escalation Thursday Night

How it worked: Democrats Forced to Cheat to Fund War.

What it looked like: Live Blog of the Vote.

How they voted on the Rule that allowed the war escalation funding to move forward.

How they voted on disaster relief, teacher funding.

How they voted on ending war funding.

How they voted on limiting war funding to withdrawal.

How they voted on an amendment to require the president to present Congress with a National Intelligence Estimate on Afghanistan and a withdrawal plan and completion date, and to require that Congress vote by July 201 1 "if it wants to allow the obligation and expenditure of funds for Afghanistan in a manner that is not consistent with the president's announced policy of December 2009 to begin to drawdown troops by July 2011."
