"Bush repeats veto threat on Iraq funding bill"

In his Saturday radio address, President Bush repeated his threat to veto bills setting non-binding deadlines for withdrawal in Iraq and raising taxes. He claimed again that setting such "arbitrary" deadlines would threaten U.S. security and that Democrats would raise taxes by nearly $400 billion in taxes to put to their special interest projects. Bush believes that his plan would eliminate the federal deficit in five years.

The Democrats responded by saying that their bill provided sufficient funding for the troops in addition to providing a "much-needed change" in Bush's Iraq policy, money to fix Walter Reed, and funds to provide troops and veterans with health care.
