Bush Has Veto Fever
Posted on May 9, 2007
President Bush has already decided to veto a second war funding bill that the House Democrats haven’t even finished drafting. The measure would require the White House to report on progress in Iraq in order to free up funds past July.
US President George W Bush would veto a second congressional bill on the war in Iraq that links funding to progress there, his spokesman has said.
The bill, currently being drafted by Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives, funds operations in Iraq until the end of July.
But it would then give Congress the option of cutting off money if the security situation did not improve.
