President Bush Goes After Pork in War Supplemental

Yesterday, the President strongly spoke out against the pork and special handouts thrown in the supplemental bill to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Here's some of what he had to say:

"...the House bill would add billions of dollars in domestic spending that is completely unrelated to the war. For example, the bill includes $74 million for peanut storage, $25 million for spinach growers...This week the Senate is considering a version that is no better...There's $3.5 million for visitors to tour the Capitol and see for themselves how Congress works. (Laughter.) I'm not kidding you."
 
"There's $6.4 million for the House of Representatives' salaries and expense accounts. I don't know what that is, but it is not related to the war and protecting the United States of America."
 
"Here's the bottom line: The House and Senate bills have too much pork, too many conditions on our commanders, and an artificial timetable for withdrawal. (Applause.) And I have made it clear for weeks, if either version comes to my desk, I'm going to veto it."
