WASHINGTON, March 30 — The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service has estimated that the Army has enough budget flexibility to pay for its military operations through July in the event that a standoff between the White House and Congress over Iraq holds up the money the administration says it needs for the war effort.

The service’s report, made public Friday by Senate Democrats, said the Pentagon may have to shift money between accounts and curtail some nonessential activities, but said Congress has provided the military with new ability to do so, lessening the potential for disruptions until additional money is approved.

The GOP is spinning this to make it seem the funds run out in April! Not true..

Congress has approved the funding for the military, however, they want guidelines for withdrawal of the troops with that funding. Bush said he will veto!

Spin, spin and blame the Dem's!
