Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed a supplemental measure to fund ongoing military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq .
"We must give our troops the tools to continue their success and come home in victory," said Congressman Price. "By following the guidance of our commanders, we have seen positive developments in the region. However, many challenges lie ahead, especially in Afghanistan . Given the necessary resources, there is no enemy our brave men and women in uniform cannot defeat.
"Providing them this support during a time of conflict should not be an issue of partisan contention, as Democrats have repeatedly made it. Going forward, I hope that President Obama will continue to heed the advice of his generals on the ground in order to execute a strategy that values success over appeasing his party's vocal fringe."
