Democrats Cave- Senate Passes Bill to Fund Troops
Oops! They did it again.
The Pelosi-Reid Congress fails again.
The US Senate has authorised more spending for the Iraq war, without tying the bill to a timetable for troop withdrawal – a key Democratic demand.
In a 90-3 vote, it approved a further $189bn (£94bn) for the campaigns in Iraq and also in Afghanistan.
Democrats, who have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, accepted the measure after failing to impose the timetable demand.
The bill had passed in the House of Representatives. President Bush is now expected to sign it into law.
Democrats Byrd (D-WV), Feingold (D-WI) and Sanders (I-VT) voted against funding the troops at war.
Michelle Malkin has more on the cave in.
MORE Caving… Reid and dems are planning to cave to the president on the FISA Surveillance Bill, too.
