ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request made by President George Bush for additional $190 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan war in the U.S. When the issue is brought to Congress, Democratic leaders downplayed calls for swift action on the massive spending package for the protracted battle over the new fundings for the U.S. military involvement in Iraq because legislators see no urgency in taking up the issue on Congress.
