    I address his specific role in the bill.

    It's ginormous and originated in the House (as a spending bill), so he wasn't the originator of it, of course.

    But the point is that what he takes credit for in the ad is unequivocally something he really did -- he really was responsible for part of the bill that "extended health care for wounded troops."  Wording from S. 713, which he sponsored, made it into the bill verbatim.

    He also submitted two amendments that would have done even more, but they were tabled.
