    [Note from Democrat Dave: This was not a funding bill for vets; this action was to condemn an ad by MoveOn.org with respect to General Patreaus, e.g., “General Patreaus or General Betray Us.” This bill did nothing but express the sentiments of the Senate. This bill also was not authored or proposed by John McCain. The GOP wanted to express their outrage at the ad. McCain voted for it.]
