McNerney votes to get out of Iraq

... now that the word "responsible" was included in the legislation (HR 2956: Responsible Redeployment from Iraq Act).

Previously, McNerney said he needed both detailed diplomatic plans and funding for veterans health care which prohibited him from voting in favor of the May 2007 Iraq Redeployment Bill (HR 2237).

Well, one out of two ain't bad. There is no mention of funding veteran's health care in HR 2956 but there is this requirement:
(4) Specific plans for diplomatic initiatives to engage United States allies and others in the region to bring stability to Iraq.
