DISASTER AID FOR NC FARMERS WILL BE VETOED
Included in the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act of 2007 (H1591) is disaster relief for North Carolina apple farmers, many of whom lost 90 percent of their crop this year due to the recent freeze.
This is the bill El Presidente says he will veto because it contains language for a troop withdrawal timetable. How dare them! (Over there in Iraq is some other expensive apples.)
NC farmers statewide experienced an estimated $111.7 million in crop losses from the April freeze.
Meanwhile, El Presidente is experiencing a spoiled brat tantrum because Congress has begun to say no.
We're on the verge of a tantrum ourselves.
