Kingston Statement On President's Afghanistan Speech

Following President Obama's speech regarding Afghanistan, Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) released the following statement:

"After three months of indecision, the President now comes up short of what his hand-picked commanding general requested. To further complicate matters, rather than take the billions sitting idly in the failed TARP and "stimulus,' Democrat leaders want to slap a brand new tax on Americans in the middle of one of the worst economies in our history to fight what they called the "right war.'"

Congressman Kingston is a senior member of the Defense Appropriations Committee which will be charged with funding the troop increase and all Department of Defense-related activities in the region.
