While some have worried that the Democratic controlled Congress might strip our war efforts of funding, that wasnâ€™t the case in the House where members passed $97 billion in war funding by a vote of 368-60 — $12 billion more than President Obama requested.
The senate is in the process of passing a similar bill, making it almost a sure thing that Obama will get all the money he needs to fight our wars the way he wants. I wonder if a President McCain would have gotten the money as easily?
