Reid: Troop-Funding Bill Will Give Military Tools They Need To Do Their Jobs And Make America Safer

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after the Senate passed the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill:
“This bill expresses Democrats’ commitment to strengthening our military, rebuilding our standing in the world and reducing key security threats.  It will give our brave troops – including the nearly 1,000 men and women from Nevada serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and here at home – the resources they need to do their jobs and return home safely.
“We are also making critical investments to make sure we are prepared for a pandemic, strengthen the security along our borders, and support counterterrorism programs both at home and abroad.
“The American people have resoundingly rejected eight years of a reckless foreign policy, and they demanded change.  This evening, Democrats took yet another important step to deliver that change.”
