Pelosi Says GOP Is Hiding Behind Troops

Posted on April 7, 2011 by


The house minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, claims that the GOP is “hiding” behind the U.S. troops. Pelosi (Democrat) basically says the Republicans are doing such a thing to guilt trip in order to bribe others into voting for the Stopgap Budget Bill.

Republicans are asking for a short-term continuing resolution, or CR, that would keep the government open and fund troops for a week. Pelosi said that the choice on the floor will be a clear one and there would be a vote against it. She added that if it passed, she’d hope the president would veto it (from fox news, link below)

The minority leader (Pelosi) said Democrats know who they are, and they are the biggest supporters of troops and that their past indicates that. (from fox news, link below)
