Washington, D.C. – Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) today issued the following statement on the FY 2008 Emergency Supplemental bill vote.
As I have said before, I will not vote to blindly continue this war. Our brave men and women in uniform deserve better. With that in mind, I voted for a responsible and efficient redeployment of our combat units out of Iraq and against a blank check for the Bush Administration. After more than five years, the price we have paid is far too high – with more than 4,000 U.S. troops killed and more than 30,000 U.S. troops wounded. The time has come to bring our soldiers home.
