McMorris Rodgers Statement on Veto Override
(Washington, D.C.) Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers released the following statement today regarding the veto override:
“With the failed vote to override the President’s veto of the Iraq Emergency Supplemental bill, it is my hope that we can finally stop playing politics and get to work in providing our troops with the funding they need. It is time for Democrats, Republicans and the President to work together on a bill to ensure our men and women on the ground have all the resources necessary to do the job we have asked of them. We need a bill that does not compromise our troops or the security of our nation by establishing arbitrary timetables for withdrawal and defeat.
“Let us never forget that the men and women who serve in our military are real people, with real families who are committed to sacrificing it all for the needs of our country. We have an obligation to provide them with both the resources and support they need to achieve success.”
