Light 'Em Up for the Webb Amendment

This legislation gives reasonable deployment breaks to soldiers so the military doesn't break, and it has bipartisan support.  Last time we got 56 votes for this, and with Tim Johnson it's 57.  We only need three more to break with the Republicans to get this to pass.  Senator Webb explains his amendment to the internets and why it's important to take action.

Here's the target list.  Please call and ask these senators to support Jim Webb's pro-troop amendment:

Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
DC: 202-224-6665
Anchorage: 907-271-3735

George Voinovich (R-Ohio)
DC: (202) 224-3353
Cleveland: (216) 522-7095

Elizabeth Dole (R-North Carolina)
DC: 202-224-6342
Raleigh: 866-420-6083

John Warner (R-Virginia)
DC: (202) 224-2023
Roanoke: (540) 857-2676

Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky)
DC: 202-224-2541
Louisville: 502-82-6304

Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania)
DC: 202-224-4254
Harrisburg: (717) 782-3951

Bonus - Ask Harry Reid to "don't let Republicans obstruct - make them stand and filibuster":

Harry Reid
DC: 202-224-3542
Las Vegas: 702-388-5020

UPDATE: Sure enough, Saint John Warner the Bipartisan Dreamboat is considering changing his vote because Bush promised him that a few thousand troops are coming home next year.

Some questions (0.00 / 0)
How many of them do we need?  Which Republicans do we know we have (Collins, Sununu, Smith)? Do we know when this will be introduced/filibustered/voted on?

Anyone have/know where I can find this information?

I support John McCain because children are too healthy anyway.
