Blunt: Separating War Funding "Offensive"

Rep. Roy Blunt is blasting the notion of separating Afghanistan and Iraq funding in the upcoming war supplemental bill.

He called the idea "unsustainable" and "offensive." "It will be offensive to think we are going to support our troops in Afghanistan in some different way than we are our troops in Iraq," said Blunt.

"It's a bad idea and it's an idea that probably never gets out of the Appropriations Committee." The President's $108 billion dollar request should hit the House floor by late April or early May.
