Support bill that will help our troops

Recently, certain Republicans and pundits have been lying to the American people. They have been spinning a bill ” designed to ensure that when our troops are deployed overseas, they are adequately equipped and prepared ” as a bill that is anti-troop.

Since when is it anti-troop to provide members of our Armed Services with adequate protection, preparation and rest before returning them to battle? One could argue the point logically ” that it is, in fact, anti-troop to send our troops back to a battle underprepared, underprotected and under rested.

Sadly, since the liberation of Iraq began, this is what the Republican-controlled Congress has done. Under this bill, Congress has an opportunity to finally support our troops in an adequate manner. Enough politics. Enough lies. Support our troops by supporting this bill.
