WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate sent President Bush an emergency spending bill Thursday meeting his funding requests for America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and aid to Gulf Coast hurricane victims.
The 98-1 vote on the $94.5 billion House-Senate compromise legislation gave much-needed funds to support U.S. troops overseas. Most of the money — $66 billion — goes to the Pentagon for military operations overseas.
Bush has said he will sign the bill into law.

Since the US is at War, it must provide the monies necessary to fight it. Are you suggesting we shouldn't be at war, or that we shouldnt' fund it properly?

If the government wanted to improve education and health care, they would.
