Does your House Rep say one thing to you and then vote differently? Does your Senator make promise out of one side of his/her mouth then vote the other side? Find out now if what they are telling you matches their votes.
The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) have set up a website that looks at the current 111th congress, just type in your zip code and see how they voted.
All of the Legislation voted on and Methodology used to determine their grade can be found here.
With our troops still engaged in two theaters of war and the number of wounded and those killed in action continuing to rise daily, your vote this November is of the utmost importance to make sure our Veterans and their families have the proper representation in Washington DC.
Many of our congressional leaders in Washington DC say they “Support our Troops”, yet many vote against you and your families. The IAVA will show you the legislation and the votes. They do not care if they are a republican or a democrat, they use the same methodology for grading on each piece of legislation for regardless of party affiliation.
Don’t waste your vote this November on empty promises, before you walk into the voting booth and vote for one of them, first learn how they voted for you.
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld once said to a soldier who wanted to know why he had no body armor, “you go to War with the Army you have, not the Army you wished you had”.
So when you go to vote this November or if vote early, go with the knowledge you can have, right here and right now, not the knowledge you wish you had. Don’t take their word that they “Support the Troops“, take how they voted to “Support the Troops“
