Above is the complete vote...all accounted for...note...Authorization only...but still, what is there to say?.

IF YOU LINK TO THIS STORY, YOU WILL SEE THERE IS NO TIMETABLE...
It is over 509 Billion to the Pentagon and also..included over 189 Billion for Iraq and Afghanistan. This is authorization only, not the funds.
That is to be decided later...solar

"...included over 189 Billion for Iraq and Afghanistan."

....we're still in Iraq?....I guess we're going to be there a spell....'Out of Iraq, NOW!' must be for sissys and those crazy leftys that represent 'nobody' and make up .2% of the voting population....

....until we get our own non-profit Party, nothing will change; too much money to be made killing people....
