ROSKAM STATEMENT ON IRAQ SUPPLEMENTAL SPENDING BILL

Congressman Peter J. Roskam (R-IL) issued the following statement today opposing the Democrat's Iraq Supplemental (Round 2):

"Today Congress once again failed to support our troops and failed to show any sense of fiscal responsibility with taxpayer dollars.

"This bill provides U.S. troops with less than half of the requested funding while fully funding over $16 billion in non-war and non-emergency spending. This unconscionable bill blatantly shows the Democrat's priority of pork-barrel projects over winning the War on Terror.

"Partisanship should stop at the waters edge, especially when it comes at the expense of the brave men and women in uniform. However, this majority has placed partisan grandstanding above standing with our troops in support of victory.

"I will continue to oppose measures that undercut our troops and undermine our national security."
