Funding our Troops in Combat

I truly can not believe that our Congress is deliberately refusing to fund our troops while they are in combat!!! Does anyone think that this fails to encourage our enemies? Can this fail to discourage our troops? Having lead soldiers in combat in Vietnam, I can affirm that discouraged soldiers are more likely to make the mistakes that can cost lives. And our Congress not only doesn’t care, they’re actually happy about this?br /br /Please contact both your Congressman and US Senators. Demand from them a bill without any pork in it that funds our soldiers in combat. No delay; no politics; no pork. Just the support that our troops deserve. Anyone we’re paying to be our representative in Washington who doesn’t immediately reply with a resounding statement of support (followed by action) should never be re-elected again.br /br /What a disgrace.
