…then I hope that Democrats will follow through with their threat! Since Cheney has decided that he is not part of the Executive Branch of our government, Democratic Representative Rahm Emanuel plans to introduce an amendment to the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill that cuts the funding for the office of the Vice President. How awesome is that?!?!
There has been some criticism of this on the Democratic side, but not for the plan itself. Democratic Leadership seems to have forgotten, or are too iffy on the concept that they hold the majority in both houses of Congress. If we didn’t cut funding for the Iraq war because of draft dodger Bush when he started all of his pontificating, some Democrats are worrying that our Congress will back down and not pass the amendment.
What say you, our duly elected Democratic leaders? Will you stick to it and fight? I plan on telling my Democratic Representative to support it!
