Bill S. 641: No cutting of funding for the troops

This is a copy of what I retrieved from the Thomas guide. I copied it because everytime I've tried to link to it in the past, it did not work. Grr. The words I used were: no cutting off funding for the troops. If you would like to do the same search. Also, you will get 0 for exact match, etc. Go to the last one that has 1000 bills containing one or more of your search words.

Well, how did the vote go in the Senate? 82 Senators approved it! A lot of talk for all those blowhards. Wouldn't ya say? lol. BTW, why isn't anyone touting this bill? Are the Republicans really this stupid? Oh, nevermind. For a minute there I lost my mind and thought they found their spine. I'll try not to do that in the future. Ho hum. Here is the whole copy:

Update: I was listening to the radio when I received this information. Apparently this bill has been tabled to be put on the calendar at a later date. I don't know where Mark Levin got the 82 votes from...maybe another vote? (My fault. Sorry.) Rep Mike Pence also has a bill that has gone to the Congressional House Committee on Armed Services. The number is H.CON.RES.64.

A BILL

To express the sense of Congress that no funds should be cut off or reduced for American troops in the field which would result in undermining their safety or their ability to complete their assigned missions.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ELIMINATION OR REDUCTION OF FUNDS FOR THE ARMED FORCES IN THE FIELD.
(a) FINDINGS- Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Under article II, section 2, of the Constitution of the United States, the President is the `commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States', and in such capacity the President has the command of the Armed Forces, including the authority to deploy troops and direct military campaigns during wartime.

(2) Under article I, section 8, of the Constitution of the United States, Congress has the power of the purse specifically as it relates to the Armed Forces, and in such capacity Congress has the responsibility to fully and adequately provide funding for United States military forces, especially when they are at war and are defending the Nation.

(3) When United States military forces are in harm's way and are protecting our country, Congress and the Nation should give them all the support they need in order to maintain their safety and accomplish their assigned missions, including the equipment, logistics, and funding necessary to ensure their safety and effectiveness, and such support is the responsibility of both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch of Government.
(b) SENSE OF CONGRESS- It is the sense of Congress that Congress should not take any action that will endanger United States military forces in the field, including the elimination or reduction of funds for troops in the field, as such action with respect to funding would undermine their safety or harm their effectiveness in pursuing their assigned missions.
