To fund Mr. Obama’s war, the Pentagon, at this time, has nearly $60 billion, unspent, in the Overseas Contingency Operations Fund.

Congress does not need to appropriate $500 million or $5 billion, or whatever the number is. The money is already there, funded by Congress in previous budgets.

Distrust in government comes from these stupid mind games political parties play. The Republicans do not need to fund Mr. Obama’s war and the Democrats do not need to point fingers at a Republican Congress for not funding the war.

The money is already in the hands of the military!
