And let the RECORD not stand with the Senator's words...that those who vote against this bill are voting against the troops. I defy that statement. I defy that statement, and I hurl it back into the teeth of the Senator from Alaska.
I support the troops. I would say that every Senator here, regardless of how he or she votes, supports the troops. So do not throw that old canard over here, over this way.
I close by congratulating those Senators who have the courage to speak their will...and who do not support the doctrine of preemption.
Fie on that doctrine of preemption! Fie on it!
