Allen Blasts Warmongering Republicans for Subverting Democracy

VIEW ALL: Iraq War, Tom Allen

After both House and Senate approved language stating that “it was not the policy of this nation to establish a permanent U.S. military presence in Iraq” from an emergency appropriations bill (H.R. 4939, The Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Hurricane Recovery for Fiscal Year 2006) that very same language was removed by Republican leaders.

Said Rep. Tom Allen, “Removal in the conference report is another example of how the Republican leadership routinely subverts the will of rank and file members of both parties. This is a breach of faith with Members of the House and Senate from both sides of the aisle who want to end the violence and chaos that plague Iraq.”
