Once again Democrats in the House have overstepped their Constitutional authority by trying to dictate to the President how he is to conduct the war by voting for a completely unconstitutional bill. They have once again tied funding to troop withdrawals and a specific timetable of when combat will end. They did this knowing it would not pass in the Senate and even if it did, that the President would veto it. It is already nearly 2 months into the fiscal year and they have still not passed a bill yet to fund the war, provide the necessary equipment to protect the troops, and troop raises. Now with this action, it is very likely the new funding that is extremely vital will not come until after the new year.
You have to give them one thing. Even after going 0-40 so far on bills to end the war unconstitutionally, they are nothing if not persistent. I guess they have to do something to make it appear to their very active anti-war base they are doing what they were elected to do. It's just too bad that they are more concerned with getting re-elected than they are in making sure the troops have the equipment they need to come home alive and the time they need to come home victorious.
