"Pelosi said: 'The American people have rejected the President's failed policies in Iraq and his war without end. The situation on the ground in Iraq is worsening, and the Iraqi government has failed to meet the benchmarks set in law. This week, every Member of the House will have an opportunity to vote to set a new direction in Iraq. The American people want Congress to bring our troops home, refocus our efforts to fighting terrorism, and hold the Bush Administration accountable.'"

"'Think about what $10 billion a month would mean to protecting Americans from terrorism, improving security at our ports and airports, and increasing border security. Think about what $10 billion a month would mean for the 47 million Americans who don't have health insurance, for the survivors of Hurricane Katrina, and for the education of our children. Think about what $10 billion a month would mean to lowering the deficit so that future generations are not burdened with debt."

Press Release
"'Another senior Republican senator has broken with the failed Iraq policy of President Bush. Senator Domenici's March 2008 timetable is consistent with the legislation Democrats have proposed as recently as June 29 to redeploy our troops and reflects the recommendations of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group. Yet President Bush and most of his party in the House and Senate remain firmly committed to a policy that has failed and a war without end."

"'The Peru-U.S. Free Trade Agreement that Peru's legislature ratified this week is an historic accomplishment in trade policy and in our bilateral relationship with a strong friend in a region vital to U.S. economic and national security. The agreement has great potential to strengthen the economic ties between our two great countries and to improve standards of living in both countries. It also reflects long-standing Democratic priorities with the inclusion of enforceable, internationally recognized labor rights and environmental standards."

"Even with Republicans trying to block our efforts at every turn, this Democratic Congress is delivering on our promises to the American people as we continue to put working families first and make our nation more secure. Both the House and Senate have passed the bipartisan 9/11 Commission recommendations and tough ethics and lobbying reform, while also raising the minimum wage and balancing the budget. Yesterday Republicans once again objected to making our country safer and cleaning up Washington, blocking Democrats' efforts to move the 9/11 Commission recommendations and ethics reform bills to conference."
