Reid Spokesman: Senator McCain Blocking Support For Our Troops Because He Didn’t Get His Way In A Committee Room

Washington, DC – Jim Manley, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today after Senator McCain blocked critical support for our troops on the battlefield:
“Apparently, Senator McCain is willing to block battlefield equipment upgrades and pay raises for our troops because he didn’t get his way in a committee hearing room. With his irresponsible obstruction of critical support for troops who sacrifice for our country every day, Senator McCain seems more interested in political grandstanding than protecting our men and women on the battlefield.  Our troops deserve better.”
