The Iraqi Government Gets Two Month Vacation While Our Troops Keep Getting Killed

Here's an article explaining how the Iraqi parliament plans to take two months off. This is beyond outrageous. How are you going to explain to the families of soldiers and Marines that died in those two months that their sons and daughters died while the Iraqis weren't even trying to make peace?

Can our troops get the same two month vacation that the Iraqi government gets? It only seems fair. Maybe the Democrats should include this proposal in the next funding bill.
