Rep. Obey Joins "Idiot Liberals": Vows Not To Fund Iraq Debacle Without Date Certain to End War
"I would be more than willing to report out a supplemental meeting the President's request if that request were made in support of a change in policy that would do three things.
-- "Establish as a goal the end of U.S. involvement in combat operations by January of 2009."
-- "Ensure that troops would have adequate time at home between deployments as outlined in the Murtha and Webb amendments."
-- "Demonstrate a determination to engage in an intensive, broad scale diplomatic offensive involving other countries in the region."
"But this policy does not do that. It simply borrows almost $200 billion to give to the Departments of State, Defense, Energy, and Justice with no change in sight.
"As Chairman of the Appropriations Committee I have absolutely no intention of reporting out of Committee anytime in this session of Congress any such request that simply serves to continue the status quo."
Not funding after a date certain. Good idea Congressman. Welcome to the fight. We "Idiot Liberals" have been waiting on you for the past seven months.
