Con. Walden on Iraq Bill

Below is a press release from Congressman Greg Walden’s Office 3-27-07:

Statement from Congressman Walden on Iraq War spending bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. “” Congressman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) today issued the following statement regarding his “no” vote on the House version of the Iraq War emergency supplemental funding bill, which tied county payments funding to a firm withdrawal date of U.S. troops regardless of the assessments of commanders on the ground in Iraq:

“Until the majority Democrats in the House and the Senate work out language in the war supplemental that the President will sign, this measure will not become law and our timber-dependent counties and school districts will not receive the emergency assistance they need. Hopefully, by next week we will have a revised measure before the House that does not include an arbitrary withdrawal date of U.S. troops regardless of the assessments of commanders on the ground in Iraq, is not overloaded with non-emergency spending, and is one that I therefore can support.”

Congressman Walden represents Oregon’s Second Congressional District, which is comprised on 20 counties in eastern, central and southern Oregon.

      Shouldn’t have had your Dems try to put a timetable on a war they don’t want to win.
