re: #449 Mich-again

So its like a having a leaky roof that you forget about every time the sun is shining and think about every time it rains.

No, it’s about different spending priorities. Democrats typically think too much goes to defence and too little to education, and the Republicans the other way around.

The original claim was that Democrats didn’t support the troops and only wanted better body armour to bash Bush, and that’s been rebutted.
Also, I find it very odd that Republicans wouldn’t support better body armour themselves.
Not everything has to be a partisan game, and increasing spending in a time of war is about supporting the troops. Even when it’s a Democrat calling for it.
