Pan-blue legislators blocked the arms budget bill for the 62nd time on October 31, 2006, since 2004. Whatever their motivation, they have weakened Taiwan's resolve and ability to face up to China's constant bullying. Who is ultimately responsible for these people's behavior? Taiwanese voters, of course! You used to have the power to put them where they are now. I hope you have the power and wisdom to kick them out.
"We don't oppose arms procurement as long as it is reasonable, but we will not pass the bill because of [Steve Young's] threats and intimidation," Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Lin Te-fu (林德福) said. Explain to the world why the bill had been blocked 61 times before Steve Young's threat.
