Jim Webb is standing up for the troops’ right to spend as much time with their families at home as they do at war.

ThinkProgress has a great summary of what’s going on with the Webb Amendment, who’s writing about it and the pathetic GOP attempts from Sen John Warner and John McCain to scuttle it. If you live in VA especially, please reach out to Warner and other senators to let them know how you feel. Here’s a list of other folks to call:

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)

I love to see Dems with a little backbone. Sen. Jim Webb:

Well, first of all, Sen. McCain, who I’ve known for 30 years, needs to read the Constitution. There is a provision in Article I, Section 8, which clearly gives the Congress the authority to make rules with respect to the ground and naval forces. There’s precedent for this.
