Next steps for defeatocrats?

From Fox News:

Could someone please tell me what the minimum wage has to do with our troops in Iraq?

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters Wednesday that he hopes to have a new bill passed in the House in two weeks, with a final bill sent to the president before the Memorial Day recess. "We're not going to leave our troops in harm's way . . . without the resources they need," said Hoyer, D-Md. (Yeah, right.)

Hoyer was reluctant to say exactly what the bill will look like, but said he anticipates a minimum-wage increase will be part of it. He also said the bill should fund combat through Sept. 30 as Bush has requested, casting doubt that Democratic leaders would adopt a proposal by Rep. John Murtha, R-Pa., to fund the war two or three months at a time.

Murtha - supporting our troops, two to three months at a clip. What a disgrace he is.
