I didn't realize that there were two threads over the same news topic. I'll share my thoughts here, too.
I foresee one of two things happening...
1. President Bush will sign a veto and send the bill back to Congress, at which time Congress will (and can) pass the bill into law, anyway. Thus,
putting the voice of America back into the White House over the Iraq conflict issue. Bush gets his money for the troops, but has to get them out.
2. President Bush will sit on the bill (pocket veto) and nothing will be done, and no money will be appropriated for "the troops", as Bush has
cried for. As Bush has made it clear, he will attempt to coerce the American populous to think that Congress is at fault for not funding the troops,
thus sending them to their deaths.
One other thing that I would like to see, is Congress get off their lazy cowardly asses and repeal
Public Law 107–40
(War on Terror)
and Public Law 107–243
Military Force in Iraq).
Promised veto unlikely to be overridden
Democrats acknowledge they do not have enough support in Congress to override Bush's veto, but say they will continue to ratchet up the pressure
until he changes course.
I sure hope that all you ATS'ers out there write your Congressperson and urge/implore them to support these bills if/when Bush does in fact veto the

Without the voice of the American people "speaking", Bush can and will essentially do as he wishes, and that is not how it is supposed to be.
The Government works for the American people, not the other way around.
