Dave Obey: Screw the Troops (Again...)

Ol' Davey, a pretend-"Catholic," shows more of his colors.

After a flurry of last-minute number changes, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Dave Obey (D-Wis.) unveiled a three-step process Tuesday for the House consideration of an emergency $183.7 billion wartime spending bill, possibly as early as this week.

...Regarding Iraq, the bill is expected to call for the administration to immediately begin a withdrawal with the goal of removing troops in Iraq from a combat role by December 31, 2009

That last provision will, of course, draw a veto from the C-in-C, (or get stripped out in the Senate), meaning that Dave Obey is threatening the payroll of active-duty troops.

I can't believe that THIS cretin actually represents Stevens Point.
