Bush reiterates vow to veto war funding bill

President Bush said Monday he looks forward to getting a bill "that doesn't set artificial timetables."

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush is expected to veto the war spending measure from Congress on Tuesday, reiterating his vow to reject any spending bill containing a timetable for removing U.S. troops from Iraq.

The president said Monday he wants to work with Democrats and is "optimistic we can get something done in a positive way."

"I look forward to working with members of both parties to get a bill that doesn't set artificial timetables and doesn't micromanage and gets the money to our troops," he said Monday during an appearance with European Union leaders. "I believe there's a lot of Democrats that understand that we need to get the money to the troops as soon as possible."
