Feingold (D-AlQuaeda) Votes Against Soldiers, Again

One of three Senators who don't like current Iraq policy.

Rusty stamped his widdle feets and voted "NO."

The Democratic-led Congress authorized more Iraq war spending on Friday, sending President George W. Bush a defense bill requiring no change in strategy after failing again to impose a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawals.

The defense policy bill, approved 90-3 by the U.S. Senate, also expanded the size of the U.S. Army and set conditions on the Bush administration’s plan to build a missile defense system in Europe.

The measure already had passed the House of Representatives and now goes to Bush, who is expected to sign it into law. It authorizes Pentagon programs expected to cost $506.9 billion during fiscal 2008, which began in October.

Let's not forget that if it were not for Tommy Thompson's shenanigans, Feingold would be practicing law with Ed Garvey, and Mark Neumann would be our other US Senator.
