How Republicans support the troops
July 12, 2007 Leave a comment
Senator James Webb (D-VA) introduced legislation in the Senate to require that troops in Iraq get the same amount of rest time state-side that they served in Iraq before they have to be sent back for another tour. Despite support from virtually every Democrat, seven Republicans, and every member of the Senate who has actually served in combat, the Republicans shot it down with a filibuster. Wouldn't want to actually support the troops by letting them not spend their entire lives in Iraq.
