Bush tells Congress to pass Iraq funding


ap.google.com

President Bush, seeking to better his negotiating position ahead of votes on a huge Iraq war-funding bill, said Saturday that U.S. troops "deserve better" than the treatment they are getting from the Democratic-led Congress.

But the dispute over the hotly contested bill, and the delay in getting it passed, is as much as anything due to demands from Bush that Democrats find unacceptable.

The bill contains unrelated domestic spending beyond Bush's $178 billion war funding request and the president has threatened a veto if it doesn't come out. Meanwhile, the White House wants to add money to the measure to let troops transfer ramped up GI Bill education benefits to their spouses or children.

More posturing on the part of the President. I love how he continually blames the Democrats for all the suffering of those int he military.

Meanwhile, while we all debate on who treats the military better
Bush wants $178 BILLION more dollars to dump into Iraq and Afghanistan.

While gas prices in the USA are now averaging $4 a gallon, and much more in some places; while our economy tanks; people are loosing their homes and jobs at record paces, Bush want to dump another large chunk of what is left of our wealth into Iraq.

The country can not afford this. Bush is a mad man and the thought of McCain continuing down this road of mental simplicity and plain out insanity is terrifying.
