Harry Reid: Bush veto delays funding for the troops
by Joe Sudbay (DC) · 4/03/2007 12:47:00 PM ET
Harry Reid is blunt as usual. If Bush wants the money for his war, he can sign the bill that Congress is sending him. It's not that complicated:
The President today asked the American people to trust him as he continues to follow the same failed strategy that has drawn our troops further into an intractable civil war. The President's policies have failed and his escalation endangers our troops and hurts our national security. Neither our troops nor the American people can afford this strategy any longer.
Democrats will send President Bush a bill that gives our troops the resources they need and a strategy in Iraq worthy of their sacrifices. If the President vetoes this bill he will have delayed funding for troops and kept in place his strategy for failure.
