Beltway Happenings
February 25, 2007--Former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) spoke to reporters after appearing on CBS News' "Face the Nation."  On the program he addressed Iraq, stating,  "I think the Congress should use its authority, its funding authority to bring down the troop level an initial 40- to 50,000 out of Iraq..."   Edwards also called for direct engagement with Iran and Syria.  Discussing his proposal for universal health care, Edwards said it would be paid for by rolling back the Bush tax cuts for people earning over $200,000.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA), in town for the National Governors Association meeting, also appeared on the program.
