No More Blank Checks
February 13, 2007
This afternoon, Speaker Pelosi opened up three days of debate on the bipartisan resolution on Iraq expressing support for our troops and disapproving of the President's escalation plan, saying:
Friday's vote will signal whether the House has heard the American people: No more blank checks for President Bush on Iraq.Ã‚Â Our taxpayer dollars must go to protect our troops, to keep our promises to our veterans, and to provide for the safety of the American people.
In light of the facts, President Bush's escalation proposal will not make America safer, will not make our military stronger, and will not make the region more stable, and it will not have my support.
