Boehner Statement on House Passage of Bill Funding Resources for U.S. Troops |
 WASHINGTON, D.C. House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on House passage of supplemental appropriations legislation to fund our troops in the field and support the efforts of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom:

"House Republicans continue to build a strong record of action on national security, supporting the courageous efforts and sacrifices of our troops and providing them with the resources necessary to successfully carry out their missions. While some Democrats push politically-motivated resolutions against President Bush for taking steps to protect our country, Republicans are working to support our troops and win the War on Terror.

"Whether it’s providing armored vehicles and tanks necessary to protect our troops or training and equipping security forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, Republicans are committed to supporting our men and women in uniform and making sure they return home safely."
