Wally says More War Needed

Via the Chico ER.

"I firmly believe Congress must unconditionally fund our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq," Herger stated in a news release. "Regrettably, the new House leaders developed a plan mandating that our troops leave Iraq under fixed timelines -- even if our generals in charge believe such withdrawals are not in our national security interest.

"Our nation's mission in Iraq is too important to fall victim to congressional micromanagement. For this reason, I opposed this measure."

Good for Workers, Bad for Business?

The Employee Free Choice Act (Wally voted no, of course, and the president has threatened to veto it) passed in the House by 50 votes. It will probably get stuck in the Senate so Bush wont have to veto it.

I am a member of CSEA, so I'm entirely biased on the subject, but I think anytime you can get conservatives to try and use the phrase "Orwellian" you're on to something.
