The folks over at Keep America Safe have just issued a Congressional score card based on votes in the area of National Security.
A cross-section of votes between 2001 and 2010 was taken to reflect a range of national security topics. Twenty-nine votes were selected in the Senate, and twenty-seven were selected in the House. The votes reflect a range of topics from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay and detainee issues to Iran to missile defense.
Most get A’s or B’s, with the notable exception of:
Green TX-9 F
Green TX-29 F
Johnson-30 F Not Sam Johnson the war hero and patriot of TX-3
Ron Paul F <—- This is well deserved.
Texans and Virginians have some work to do this November.
Exit question: Why do minorities overwhelmingly vote against national security? Is it that they are part of the Hate America crowd or do they simply lust after the money that is appropriated for defense? Both? Yeah. Probably both.
