    • On May 21, 2009, by Ron_Paul_Girl - We don't have the money in the Treasury to pay for this! Find the money in the already approved budget and reallocate it for our troops! This bill is loaded with international pork, like 10 million for Somalia - Somalia? It doesn't have a valid government, so this money must be for the pirates. It has over 800 million for Egypt - and they can use it to secure their borders. Their borders? What about OUR borders????? This bill is WRONG for 2 reasons - it's additional spending AND it is filled with questionable international spending that could actually aid our enemies.

    • On May 22, 2009, by oakgall - This legislation contains Joseph Lieberman's S. Amdt. 1157, which gives the Secretary of Defense the power to conceal photographic evidence of FUTURE acts of torture. Why on earth is Congress granting powers to the Executive Branch to help cover up torture? Have we learned nothing?
