Senate, House Create War-Funding Problems for Bush

Hosted by

By two votes last night, the US Senate approved a non-binding deadline for pulling out of Iraq by March of next year. By the middle of May, the military will be running short of money in Iraq. This morning, after President Bush again threatened to veto any measure with a deadline for troop withdrawal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged him to "calm down with the threats." Mike Allen, who reports for the new website, Politico, reports on a potential impasse.
