House Defies Bush
Posted by nytexan on May 10, 2007
WASHINGTON (CNN) — The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a $96 billion war spending measure, despite a veto threat from President Bush.The bill, passed 221-205, would send the Pentagon about $40 billion up front to fund U.S. combat operations into July.
Additional funding would be dependent upon progress in the four-year-old war, based on a review of how well the Iraqi government was meeting a series of benchmarks.
It’s doubtful the Senate will pass their version of the bill. You can take this to the bank, if the Senate passes their version and it makes it to Bush’s deck, President Incompetent will veto. Did you expect anything else?
