REP. EDWARDS' STATEMENT ON CUTS TO MILITARY QUALITY OF LIFE ..............


(WASHINGTON, DC)---U.S. Representative Chet Edwrads (D-TX) released the following statement after deep cuts were made to vital military programs under the 2007 Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill.

"This sends a terrible message to our troops here at home, in Iraq and Afghanastan that this Congress would cut $507M in vital military construction projects and $735M from military healthcare in order to pay for the tax cuts they passed just a few days ago," said Edwards, ranking member of the Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee. "This is a shameful process and I understand why the American people hold this Republican Congress in low esteem."
