Republicans Filibuster To Block Troop Protection

-- by Dave Johnson

The Republicans filibustered, obstructed, refused to allow "an up-or-down vote," blocking a bill that "would have placed strict limits on National Guard and reserve deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan as well as mandating more downtime at home before active-duty combat troops are returned to battle." (Details of the bill are here.)
