War With Syria: Where Do Your Congressional Representatives Stand?

President Obama has said he will ask for Congressional authorization to attack Syria.

We know that Alan Grayson is firmly against going to war with Syria. Grijalva is also opposed. Justin Amash will lead the opposition from the Republican side.

Eliot Engel has a war boner on, and as ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee he can do a lot of damage. And the firmly anti-war Nancy Pelosi will undoubtedly whip her caucus in support of the President and his desire to wage an extremely unpopular war.

So where does your member of Congress stand? Let us know in the comments so we can start vote counting.
