55. Former House member says, “Cut off the money” to the war

Former House member says, “Cut off the money” to the war

Middletown – Former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman says the Democratic Majority in Congress must stand up to President Bush and end the war in Iraq.

Holtzman was in the House in the 1970s during the Vietnam War and she said Congress should do what lawmakers did back then, keep introducing legislation to cut off funding for the war, but leave enough in to bring the troops home.

“That’s how we stopped the war in Vietnam. We stopped the money. We cut off the money. The president vetoed the bill; we went through that. ‘This is déjà vu all over again,’ as Yogi Berra said, Holtzman said. “The president vetoed the bill in 1973. We gave him the same provision on various bills and he finally said, ‘Okay, give me another 60 days to keep the bombing of Cambodia going, and you’ve got 60 days and it’s all over.”

Holtzman, who was in Middletown Wednesday night to promote the book she co-authored, The Impeachment of George W. Bush.
