Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) is expressing disappointment and dismay with congressional liberals who have refused to support legislation to fully fund America’s men and women in uniform through the end of the current fiscal year. Legislation to fund our troops while cutting $12 billion in wasteful government spending over the next week was approved by House Republicans without much help from Democrats. The bill now goes to the Democrat-controlled Senate which has already made clear it will not pass the bill.
