ALEXANDER STATEMENT IRAQ WAR FUNDING SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS BILL

Posted on May 24, 2007

“After months of partisan bickering, the Congress has finally done what it should have done in February: pass a bill to fund and support our troops. Some issues are simply too big for one party to solve, and Iraq is foremost among them. I hope that, after senators cool off during the Memorial Day break, we can come together and find a bipartisan way forward in Iraq. The fact that eight senators have now endorsed the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group offers the best opportunity for forging a bipartisan consensus on a new course in Iraq.”
