Scorecard Monday: Veterans

In the past we've discussed the irony of Jimbo chairing the subcommittee on Veteran Affairs, while completely ignoring them.

For his record in 2005, The Disabled American Veterans gave Jimbo a stunning 0%, in other words he never once voted in the interests of Veterans. Here's some lowlights:
  • Voted against $53 million veterans health care and process claims for compensation and pensions. This bill was defeated by a single vote too.
  • Failed to show up for a vote on emergency appropriations for the Veterans' Health Administration.

Check here to see all of the legislation the DAV would like, but Jimbo refuses to cosponsor.

Way to honor those who have served our country, Jim.
