Hoyer: House Republicans Slash Military Funding, Even as They Provide Huge Tax Cuts to the Wealthy

"This vote is the Result of the Republicans' Misguided Budget Priorities," says Democratic Whip

WASHINGTON, D.C.---House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Republican Members struck more than $500M in critical funding from the Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2007. The funding that was struck from the bill was specifically requested by President Bush:

"The Republican Party is at war with itself, and today the men and women in the United States military unfortunately were caught in the crossfire.

"Less than 48 hours ago, House Republicans passed a budget that betrays our nation's values and fails to meet our priorities. For example, the Republican budget---at a time of record deficits and exploding national debt---calls for an additional $228B in tax cuts over five years while under-funding crucial priorities such as military construction.

"In an attempt to address this matter, President Bush specifically requested an additional $507M for military construction and that funding was designated as an 'emergency' so that it could not count against the spending caps in the Republican budget that passed early Thursday morning. Today, $507M---which was requested by the President to support our troops---was struck from the Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act by Members of the President's own party.

"This entire episode is the direct result of the Republican Party's irresponsible economic policies, which put tax cuts above all other national priorities---even our men and women in uniform and our national security. The Republican Party, after adding more than $3T to the national debt over the last 64 months, still clings to the reckless and discredited notion that we do not have to pay for what we buy. Today, it is the United States military that paid the price for the Republican Party's midguided priorities."

*These people need to be taken out of office! This is not the way to support our troops! This President is taking from the poor and giving to the rich! This is not a man with any kind of "christian morals." He is a phoney and I was able to see right through him since the day he got into office. It's just a shame that he was able to put over on the people for such a long time! Now we know what the Republicans are "truly" like! This is not the way to treat our troops. Hasn't he taken enough away from them?

I don't care if you Bush supporters out there don't care for what I have to say. You can leave all of the messages that you want and I'm not going to care. Epecially the ones that are in my computer watching everything that I have to say! Get over it! Nobody but people who are just like this administration, like them and their congressional puppets anymore. And from what I see, you are not even his base anymore!
