DEMOCRATS HOLDING DEFENSE SPENDING HOSTAGE

In a 52 - 47 vote the measure to withdrawal troops out of Iraq within 120 days was defeated in the Senate after an all night show debate staged by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. There really was never any question as to whether the measure would pass or not since the required number of 60 to over come a filibuster was never going to happen. Additionally if the withdrawal measure had passed the required 2/3 majority or 67 to override a Presidential VETO was also not there.

So Harry Reid has decided to, " take his ball and go home." In a fit designed to show his aggravation at not getting his way in the vote after staging the slumber debate and holding an after dark rally on the Capitol steps, Reid has pulled the ENTIRE defense spending bill from the Senate floor.

Now not only does he hold hostage monies for the war but also money for training, supply, pay raises, medical benefits, electric bills, fuel for operation of equipment, in other words everything needed for the defense of our nation both at home and abroad.

For the first time in our history the defense spending bill is being held hostage to make a political point and also for the first time if Reid does not return the bill to the Senate floor the Defense Department could find the coffers bare as money begins to dwindle because the spending bill for the entire department has not passed.

This unprecedented move by Reid in response to not getting the withdrawal vote he staged endangers the country because of lack of funding for the defense of this nation. Then this liberal from Nevada has the gaul to go before the cameras and blame Republicans for his actions.

He obviously cares nothing for our troops, our national security nor for the protection of this nation as he throws his temper tantrum and plays political games with necessary legislation for the troops, security, and the survival of the Department of Defense. This is a disgusting display by a despicable person.

Ken, I am confused. Are you talking about the Defense appropriations for FY 2008? That won't start until October 1. There is plenty of time to send a bill to the President.

I'm not really sure what your concern is. Do you believe that there won't be an appropriations bill in place by October 1?

Actually Rob, my concern is that in a fit of anger a leader of the Senat just pulls necessary legislation because HE did not get his way.

I realize that there is still time to pass the bill but will Reid continue to hold the bill hostage as a means of getting his way regardless of the consequences ?

That is what concerns me.

I am sure there is nothing to worry about. There is no way Congress won't pass a defense appropriation bill for FY 2008.
