Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Thursday that if Congress was unable to pass legislation that sets a timetable on the war - the most likely scenario - they would drop the issue until next year. In the meantime, Democrats say, the Pentagon can eat into its $471 billion annual budget without being forced to take drastic steps.
"The days of a free lunch are over," said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
Does Schumer really believe that the entire US military is only after a "free lunch"?Millions of Americans, all over the world, not just Iraq, are standing in defense of this country.
Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrats are refusing to fund the US military.
They are not just refusing funding in Iraq, but the entire US military budget has been put on hold by the Democrats.
