The issue of continued funding of the occupation of Iraq just won’t leave my mind today. President Bush yesterday returned to Congress with a new request for funds to continue the occupation of Iraq and the military presence in Afghanistan. An additional $46 billion is requested on top of the original request for $150 billion. This request for additional funds comes on the heels of a Presidential veto of funding for children’s health care justified on the basis of costs. The administration finds no apparent disconnect between funding a war and denying our nation’s children appropriate medical care.
Mike Castle will pull out his rubber stamp once again while telling everyone how opposed to the war he is.
Too bad I can count the number of people who give a hoot about the war on one hand.
