H Res 333 Still Needs to Pass

Janesville, WI, Bataan Mother's Auxiliary
Never give up hope
Despite the passage of the Senate Resolution 333, the U.S. House of Representatives have yet to move on H. Res. 333. These are two separate bills, in two separate chambers needing two separate votes. The House bill remains in the Foreign Affairs Committee. It is a coincidence that the bills are the same number.

New Cosponsors (our new heroes!) are:

Rep Baca, Joe [D-CA-43]
Rep Bishop, Timothy H.  [D- NY-1]
Rep Cardoza, Dennis A. [D-CA-18]
Rep Hultgren, Randy [R-IL-14] 
Rep Rush, Bobby L. [D-IL-1]
Rep Ryan, Paul [R-WI-1]

  1. Do the politicians opposing the bill have any idea what Bataan was? From the World War I uniforms and weapons some fought with to the lies from Washington about ships, planes, reinforcements and medicine coming. In early December 1941 Roosevelt had planes and ships which were scheduled for the Philippines to be redirected to Europe and Australia. Within weeks after Pearl Harbor he committed full support to Churchill. So much for the "No man left behind speech." Toss in the Death March, Hell Ships and slave labor camps how can anyone with a conscious vote against this?
