10. Byrd: Have we forgotten that worst attacks occured at home?
However, homeland security is neglected for Iraq security.

Mr. President, I have twice tried to separate reconstruction money from this bill. I offered an amendment to have a plan to get the UN in and the US out. Twice tried to rid bill of authority making bill a blank check. We provide more foreign aid for Iraq here than for the entire world! I tried to divert funds for better use. But at every turn, I was thwarted by the vapid argument to support the "Commander in Chief".

Policy based on PROPAGANDA and HYPE. Debt will have to be paid by our children and the troops. I cannot support outlandish tax cuts that plunge country in disastrous debt while troops fight. 4 more died today....
