Bass Gets C+ on Veterans' Issues
The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), a non-partisan group, has produced a scorecard on legislation affecting veterans.
To calculate the Ratings, IAVA reviewed all legislation voted on in the Congress since September 11, 2001. For each piece of legislation that affected troops, veterans or military families, IAVA took a position either in support of, or in opposition to its passage. The letter grades were derived, using the scales below, from the percentage of times that each legislator's vote matched the official IAVA stance.The result? Charlie Bass, like many in his party, may talk a good game about supporting veterans, but when it comes to the actual legislation, he doesn't do such a good job, receiving a C+.
