Murtha threatens to withhold funds from the "Republican" war

In yet another (unsurprising) move to remind voters that Democrats don't want us to succeed in Iraq, Rep. John Murtha has decided that he wants to withhold funds from this "Republican" war.

Calling Iraq a "Republican" war, an angry Rep. John Murtha today joined several top Democrats in threatening to withhold the nearly $200 billion in emergency military spending that President Bush has requested.

"It is the Republicans in Congress who continue to hand this president a blank check with no policy restrictions for the war in Iraq," said Mr. Murtha, D-Johnstown, who chairs the powerful House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. "This is their war."

Rep. David Obey, D-Wisc., chairman of the full House Appropriations Committee, said he and Mr. Murtha would try to use their power of the purse to force President Bush to change course.

"I have no intention of reporting out $200 billion," Mr. Obey said.

The chairman also said he will soon introduce legislation for a war tax surcharge for all Americans -- except members of the military and their families -- to cover the conflict's huge costs. The tax, he said, could add as much as 15 percent to the federal income tax bills of the wealthiest Americans, while low- and middle-income Americans would pay about 2 percent.

Mr. Obey predicted that such a tax would collect as much as $145 to $150 billion each year, near the annual price tag of the Iraq war.

"If you don't like the cost," he said, "then shut down this war."

Mr. Murtha angrily denied that their approach would imperil soldiers already on the battlefield, saying Congress could provide enough funds for basic needs through the annual defense appropriations bill currently under consideration.

"We're going to take care of the troops. Period," he said.


Yes, because cutting off the funding to our troops is how they need to be taken care of.

They're really grasping at straws, aren't they? Anything to cut and run, and if they can't get their way, they'll slap a war tax surcharge on us -- that way, they can force us to surrender. Obey said it himself -- if you don't like the cost, shut down the war. The consequences of doing so on our national security and on the people of Iraq are inconsequential to him and the rest of the surrendercrats.

And didn't Murtha just put it perfectly? This really is the Republican war. The vast majority of Republicans are for keeping the United States safe and not plunging Iraq into turmoil, most likely causing civil war and genocide, and giving Iran and Al Qaeda a new safe haven from which they can more easily attack the United States.

The Democrats' war, however, is on the United States itself. They'd much rather we plunged the United States into dhimmitude and all live under Sharia law, as is rapidly happening in Europe. Defend the United States? Please. What could a liberal possibly find that would be worth saving here? They want to ruin everything about this country that is great to turn it into their own elitist and socialist paradise, and have no qualms about letting Al Qaeda and the terrorists win.

He really couldn't have put it any better. Republicans = winning in Iraq. Democrats = surrender.

Ask yourself why would Democrats want to surrender now? Why stomp all over the sacrifices made by our soldiers and their families.

Raise taxes, fund socialism and gun control. Democrats are easy to understand once you realize what the formula is.

Spending money to fend off your country's enemies instead of wasting billions funding socialism must really pain the Democrats.

I wonder if the "basic" needs includes money for enough ammunition to fight their way out of Iraq when retreat is sounded by a democrat administration? I wonder if "basic" needs includes the sealift to pull them off the beaches of Iraq?

The chairman also said he will soon introduce legislation for a war tax surcharge for all Americans -- except members of the military and their families -- to cover the conflict's huge costs. The tax, he said, could add as much as 15 percent to the federal income tax bills of the wealthiest Americans, while low- and middle-income Americans would pay about 2 percent.

Has Mr. Obey forgotten that a huge amount of democrat supporters/donators are in that wealthiest tax bracket? Maybe Murtha and Obey need to pull together the democrat party that controls the congress and get legislation passed to stop the war.

hyperbolist, is that most of the wealthy have small armies of lawyers and accountants to keep their tax bill down?

Like Theresa Heinz - "embarrassed" to get tax breaks. Please. She took the cuts, didn't she? Kennedy could pay at the higher rate in Mass. He doesn't. If they want to give more, don't itemize. It's that simple.

I've no doubt there are some who don't mind. But they're a tiny minority in reality. Most talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.

I'm not criticizing the wealthy because they have money. Many give considerably to charitable organizations. It's a noble thing to do. At least they get to pick who gets the money and how much. What I do criticize is the fact that even in some states where they can opt to pay at a higher rate, they don't, but harp about "tax cuts for the rich".

Don't get me wrong. I don't begrudge them any breaks on their tax bill. They work hard for their money, just like me. But they should spare me the rhetoric. It's a lot easier for a wealthy person to give even another third of their earnings (or to say they would) to the government than it is for others. They'd still live better than most of us. It's an exponential thing.

The blood 3 to 5 million in Southeast Asia wasn't enough for the democrats, they want more. Mental health professionals are going to be one busy group in coming years. I look at Murtha as a second coming of KKK Byrd who no competent mental health professional could rule anything other than so senile he's a danger to himself and everyone around him. Great leadership the democrats for the 11% + -5% (I'll bet on the -5%) that approve of them.

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (CNN) -- Eduardo Gonzalez, a petty officer second class with the U.S. Navy, is about to be deployed overseas for a third time. Making his deployment even tougher is the fact his wife may not be around when he comes back.

Mildred and Eduardo Gonzalez worry about what would happen to their family if she is deported.

His wife faces deportation to Guatemala -- her home country that she hasn't seen since 1989. He also doesn't know what would happen to his young son, Eduardo Jr., if that happens.

"I like being in uniform and serving my country, but if she goes back I'm going to have to give it all up and just get out and take care of my son and get a job," he said.

Maybe Tancredo can personally throw the wife and child out of the country.

Joe:

Okay, first of all Knightbrigade, 9/11 had nothing to do with Iraq - it was used as an excuse to go into Iraq, which you and all other uneducated Americans completely bought into.

Onto the actual article, though... Things in Iraq are NOT looking good and NOT improving. We're fighting a war to help people that don't want our help, don't like us, and want us out of their country. There is no clear distinction between friend and enemy. We're basically fighting blindly, and pissing away money that could be better spent actually helping people. It doesn't matter if we spend $600 billion more and 20 more years in Iraq, or if we pull out now - the result will be the same. Iraq will ALWAYS be a failed, chaotic state harboring and breeding terrorism and violence. The only way we could 'fix' that problem is if we were to kill everyone in the country, as harsh as that sounds. So, why not pull out now, save some time, money, and lives of our soldiers.

What it comes down to is this: We are taught history so that we don't make the same mistakes twice; so that we learn from the past. It's disconcerting how quickly many forget events from a few decades ago that nearly perfectly parallel events in our world today. Blinded by pseudo-patriotism as a result of the Bush Administration's campaign to exaggerate the threat of terrorism and amplify the fears of U.S. citizens in order to control them, most fail to realize that the war in Iraq is this decade's Vietnam. We're fighting a war that we can not win. We as a country need to deflate our ego, realize that not even we have the resources - monetary nor human - to emerge from this entirely victorious, and pull out before we lose much more.
