Democrats Load Up emergency Iraq Funding Bill With Pork

There has not been enough reporting on this...


For Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), there is $25 million for spinach growers hurt by last year's E. coli scare. For three conservative Democrats in Georgia, there is $75 million for peanut storage. For lawmakers from the bone-dry West, there is $500 million for wildfire suppression. An additional $120 million is earmarked for shrimp and Atlantic menhaden fishermen.
These people DO NOT support the troops. This is a Bill to fund the military and it is being held up do to politics. They need to pass a CLEAN appropriations bill to fund the war and get it out FAST. If they want to pull the troops out now, than vote to de-fund the war. Forget all these games about time tables. If you are going to leave the troops in harm's way than you give them what they need to achieve VICTORY. Notice all time tables discussed have been just PRIOR to the 2008 Presidential election. Do you think that is a coincidence??
