"I applaud President Obama's decision to bring our troops home from Iraq by the end of this year. This announcement is long overdue. Our servicemen and women in Iraq have served bravely and honorably. They and their families have sacrificed much on our behalf. We welcome their return.
I, again, urge the President to bring our troops home from Afghanistan as quickly as safely possible. We must redirect our resources to create jobs and strengthen our economy here at home."
