Who supports the troops?

Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America have ranked our congresscritters based on their votes on legislation that affects either active duty and/or retired service members, and 86 members received either a D or an F. You can read the full ratings list right here. Bob Geiger has put the list in ranking order, and you can see a pattern that refutes the Republican talking point about who really supports the troops. All Democrats ranked at a B or above. All Republicans ranked as C or below.

Ya know, some of us knew this already, but it's nice to have facts, figures and pretty little charts to back it up. Contrary to popular belief, saying you support them and putting a little yellow magnet on your SUV is NOT supporting the troops.
