Senate Republican leaders say they oppose considering measures denouncing Bush's Iraq strategy unless Democrats also agree to allow a vote on a Republican-backed proposal forbidding a cutoff of funding to U.S. troops.Democrats now control the Committee seats. If they're smart, they'll retaliate by preventing all GOP legislation from even coming up in Committee until the GOP plays ball and allows Democratic legislation to get an up-or-down vote. Unfortunately, there aren't enough smart Democrats in either chamber of Congress to do that. Never mind that for twelve years, the Republican Party completely shut them out of the legislative process.
But I digress. This ought to signal to the American public that as long as Republicans retain even a hint of power, they will continue using it to screw things up for the country.
