Americans want to cut off war funding [i.e. END THE WAR]

Most Americans oppose fully funding President George W. Bush's $190 billion request to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while a majority supports expanding a children's health care program
he has threatened to veto, a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows.


Bush's approval rating stands at 33 percent, equal to his all-time low in this poll and just 29 percent approve of the job Congress is doing -- a 14-point drop since Democrats took control in January, the newspaper said.


Only about 25 percent of Americans support the administration's $190 billion war funding request; 70 percent want the proposed allocation reduced, the Post said.

Yet common political wisdom is "we just can't cut funding for the war". Why not? American's elected you to end the war. American's want funding cut. [American's want a national health care system.]
