Bush Voted Against The $87 Billion Before He Voted For It

   By Emelius at 1:58 PM

You hear a lot about how Kerry voted for the $87 billion before he voted against it. Well there is more to it than the talking points. Here I present part 1 of this discussion. With some easy research you can find that Bush voted against the $87 billion before he voted for it. Despite how it was done, Bush threatened to deny our men and woman serving the money they needed to perform their duty. This is the same $87 billion that they take pride in hammering Kerry for. So what was so outrageous that made Bush threaten to veto the money needed to excute the Bush war plans? Was it the $9 million to modernize the Iraqi postal system in which many new addresses had to be assigned because the addresses simply did not exist any more? Was it the $100 million for war crime experts to which the Americans were a part of? No, it was because it was going to be a loan. That is right, Bush told congress that he would veto the aid needed to rebuild Iraq and support our troops because it was a loan. Bush did not want one of the richest countries in the world to have to repay the US for it's spending despite that when we went into the war, we were told that income generated in Iraq would pay for it.
