WTH?? These people need to be voted out

October 13, 2009

I know it comes from both sides, but this is ridiculous.  I think these people have forgotten that they work for us.

Read the attached article.  I find it preposterous that the dems sneak in something like this into a bill for the wars.

What does a hate crimes bill have to do with money for U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq?

Nothing, except that the National Defense Authorization Act, which will win final passage in Congress and be sent to the president’s desk this week, also contains the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which Democrats placed inside the defense measure over Republican objections.
