Reid-Iraq-Bush

Via Democrats.Senate.Gov :

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement on the floor today.
Mr. President, last Thursday a bipartisan majority of the Senate passed H.R. 1591, the Fiscal Year 2007 Emergency Supplemental Funding conference report.

This bill will be sent to the President's desk tomorrow. I strongly encourage him to set aside his veto threats and sign this bill.

Our conference report honors and provides for our courageous men and women in uniform.

It addresses the emergencies Americans face at home while the war in Iraq rages.

And it makes our country more secure by charting a new course in Iraq so that we can return our focus to the global challenges that lie ahead.

This is a good and responsible bill. It will begin the long process of leading us out of a war that has cost us so many American lives and so much treasure.

It not only represents the will of Congress -- but also the will of the American people who call for a new course - and the expertise of military experts who tell us this war can only be won politically, not militarily. Read more...

George Bush wants to subvert the will of the American people and it cannot stand. The Iraq Accountability Bill will be on his desk tomorrow and if he, as he claims, supports the troops and the citizens of the United States he should sign it.
