Walking The Walk
|Daily Kos reports some interesting findings. The nonpartisan Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America took a look at more than 300 legislative votes in the last five years which affected American troops and veterans. The proposals included veterans' benefits, healthcare, medical research dedicated towards injured soldiers, and so on. Based on these votes, IAVA calculated which congressmen and senators had a history of supporting the troops, and which didn't. The results were then graded on a curve.|
You can see the full results of the report here. But it's the Senate results that are the most shocking. Every Senate Republican, without fail, scores a "C" or lower. And every Senate Democrat, without fail, scores a "B-" or higher.
It appears that Senate Republicans support the troops the way abusive husbands love their wives.
