ROSKAM STATEMENT ON THE IRAQ SUPPLEMENTAL SPENDING BILL
"Today Congress failed to support our troops and failed to show any sense of fiscal responsibility with taxpayer dollars.
"This spending bill should have gone to provide nothing more than the necessary funding to provide our troops with the resources they need to complete their missions successfully and come home safely and soon.
"Instead, the Democrat majority put forth a bill laden with pork and special interest funding that was completely unrelated to the war and served only to manipulate their rank and file members to vote for this legislation which ties the hands of our military leaders in the field and will further embolden our enemies and endanger our troops.
"I could not in good conscience support it."
