House shortchanges Bush on cash for Afghanistan, Iraq

first_imgWASHINGTON – The House voted Friday to spend $21.3 billion on foreign aid but cut money President Bush wanted for Iraq, Afghanistan and a program that rewards countries moving toward democracy and good government. Rep. Jim Kolbe, an Arizona Republican and chairman of the foreign aid spending subcommittee, said he had to slice $2.4 billion from the president’s request to free money for pressing needs at home. “I am proud of this bill, but I can also honestly say it has probably been the most difficult one I have put together,” he said. The Senate has not yet passed its version of the bill. The Bush administration said it has serious concerns that House lawmakers did not provide enough money to meet its foreign policy and humanitarian goals. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
