Fossella just voted against troop support tonight

Here is Rep. Fossella's NO vote on troop support. He voted against this;

Expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) the war in Iraq should end as safely and quickly as possible, and our troops should be brought home; (2) the performance of U.S. military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan should be commended, and their service should be appropriately recognized; and (3) the primary purpose of funds from this Act should be to transition the mission of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq and undertake their redeployment, and not to extend or prolong the war.

And he voted against saying we should not send unprepared troops into battle;

Prohibits funds from being used ... to deploy any U.S. military unit to Iraq unless the President has certified such unit as "fully mission capable."

Where is the support he is always saying he shows? Hopefully he can go get some more posters printed up to claim he is 'supportive.'
