If the House votes “abstain” and the Senate votes “go for it”, then the President wins a “go” vote.

The House must bring this to the floor, but the democrats will side with Boehner on this one in any discharge petition. That way they get to save face as democrats by not voting against their fearless leader, and they get to go to their districts NOT having supported the war in Syria.

It must have a majority on the petition, so only a few republicans + Cantor and Boehner can defect.

Call Cantor’s office. You can get through. He needs to hear from us.
