Can someone please tell me when the Constitution was changed and the Senate and House of Representatives have the authority to dictate when the Military must pull out of a conflict? Before you all start your partisan bickering I am fully aware that they have the authority to defund the war. Instead of submitting a bill to the president (whether he will veto or not) they choose to go on vacation. They totally disregard the fact that the Defense Department and the generals have told the that they are a few weeks from running out of money. instead of funding the war and preparing seperate bills for all this PORK used to buy votes they choose to not fund the troops. Why don't they admit the truth that they want our military to fail and have no regard for our soldiers instead of hiding behind this crap. I don't think that they were elected to put our troops into a position to hurt our troops to get their political goals completed. Did you democrats really elect these people to pass Non-Binding resolutions and the largest tax increase in History? Were they elected to tell our enemies when we will pull out so that they can prepare to follow us home and to take over Iraq when we leave. By what authority is Nancy Pelosi going to Syria after the white house requested she not? Does the Speaker of House also give her authority to take over for Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense? Can someone please show me the copy of the New Constitution that gives her this authority? If the democrats are so against the policies then they should vote to Defund the war which is their right. Instead thy choose to play these games and not take care of our soldiers.
