Mitch McConnell’​s Groundhog Day

Jon Soltz,

According to census data, Mitch McConnell represents over 300,000 veterans in the U.S. Senate. So why did he vote against legislation to fund veterans’ health care during a time of crisis?

Name: Carmen C
Deadline: Midnight Tomorrow Night
Suggested Contribution: $5.00

Can we count on you to contribute $5 to VoteVets ahead of tomorrow night’s fundraising deadline?

Our ad featuring Vietnam Veteran Charles Erwin lays out the case quite clearly, and we hope Mitch McConnell sees him walking up that sidewalk, cane hitting the ground, over-and-over again… his own personal groundhog day.

Thank you for standing with VoteVets.
