Spanning the tri-state...

I just read this in my former hometown area newspaper:

"Also in the Erie Times-News was a summary of recent roll call votes taken in the House of Representatives. The military budget for fiscal 2006 of $442 billion passed overwhelmingly. There was also a motion to expand health insurance to give the National Guard and Reserve personnel (who now make up almost half the number of soldiers deployed) the same coverage as the regular Army. It would have cost $5.8 billion over five years. It failed to pass. Unless we support our troops fully with our tax dollars, all the flag waving, the soaring rhetoric, and ribbon decals attached to autos are nothing but empty words and gestures."

Indeed.
