I support S. 200 ("A bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to authorize the interment in national") because...this little Lisa Murkowski has been a busy little girl...for a person who shouldn't even be in office.

I support S. 200 ("A bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to authorize the interment in national") because... I find it disturbing that this Bill is needed. Since our Nobel Peace Prize winning President is busy blowing up and providing support to islamic terrorists overthrowing sovereign nations I hope the clandestine service personnel do not have this same problem. This government is out of control. Honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice by allowing them to rest among others who have paid the price for freedom.
