Mike Pence's staff sends along an excerpt from Congressman Pence's floor speech on the Democrat emergency funding bill for Iraq:
"Here are some examples of what the Democrats consider 'urgent' needs that require 'prompt action: '
-- $25 million for payments to spinach producers
-- $120 million to the shrimp industry
-- $74 million for peanut storage
-- $5 million for shellfish, oyster and clam producers
"Spinach, shrimp, peanuts and shellfish? That's not a war funding bill, that's the salad bar at Denny's."
Their own worst enemy.
UPDATE: The cut and run - with a little pork on the side - bill passed 218-212. 14 Democrats vote against the bill. Only two Republicans sided with Pelosi on the bill.
