Liar Liars (Democreeps and War Funding)

Recent attempts by congressional Democrats to cut off funding for our troops naturally prompt us to show that it wasn't long ago that they were saying they would never cut off funding for our troops...

From sources:

Sen Harry Reid (D-NV):

“…I don’t think anyone can find a war that this country was engaged in where the funds were cut off. No one is talking about cutting off the funds.”

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY):

“I do not support cutting funding for American troops.”

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI):

“We're not going to cut off funding to the troops … no one wants to do that.”

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA):

“I don't know of any senator who would cut off funds for troops in the field.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN):

“I don’t think we should be pulling back any funds.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA):

“Yes, the congress could cut off the funds. But the congress will not do that because our men and women are in harm’s way.”

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL):

“U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson ( D-FL ) today made clear his intention to oppose measures he sees as possibly undermining U.S. troops, like cutting funds... […] Nelson said today he’ll oppose efforts to cut off funding.”

I guess all it takes for Democrats to publicly turn their backs on the troops is a little bit of pork for their constituents.

Surely there is also a quote somewhere from Jean-Fraude Kerry to the effect that he was for appropriating the funds before he was against it ....
