Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Give Simpson an "A" for his Record
Today, the nonpartisan Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) Action Fund released its 2008 Congressional Report Card. Congressman Mike Simpson received an A. The Report Card grades every Senator and Congressman on his or her leadership and voting record on key Iraq and Afghanistan veterans' issues including the GI Bill, VA funding and mental health care.
The Report Card recognizes the 110th Congress' unprecedented achievements on behalf of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. A searchable version of the Report Card can be found at www.VeteranReportCard.org.
"Taking care of our veterans must be a priority, they are willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and I'm honored to be recognized in supporting veteran's issues and benefits," said Simpson.
