Fighting Back: Rep. Tim Walz: “Seasons Greetings to the Troops”

The weekly Fighting Back post is also an Open News Thread.

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Representative Tim Walz of Minnesota.

(Congressman Tim Walz of Minnesota, Ranking Member on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, delivered the Weekly Democratic Address. In this week’s address, Walz gave a holiday greeting to our troops and emphasized House Democrats’ commitment to making sure our military and veterans have the resources they need to succeed.)

“Season’s Greetings troops!

We are forever in your debt for the sacrifices you and your families make so that we may live freely here in the United States.

We also want you to know that while you are fighting for our freedoms, Democrats are working hard in the Congress to make sure you have what you need to succeed.[…]

While the [current year’s National Defense Authorization Act] bill is by no means perfect, we are proud to have made sure you have the tools, training, and end strength you need to carry out your missions; and the benefits, higher pay and recognition you deserve. […]

From us here in the Democratic Caucus, we wish you and your families all a happy holiday and a very happy new year!
