Conrad Burns: A D+ From American Veterans


Conrad is all talk when it comes to supporting veterans. The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association, a non-partisan group of veterans of both wars, has given the Senator a grade of D+ for Veteran and solidiers affairs.

It’s no small sample: The IAVA looked at over 300 votes in the past five years to detemine its rankings, based on “issues that affect US troops, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, and military families.”

It’s shameful for Burns to continue to cheerlead for a war, when he fails to support the men and women fighting it, but given his lack of support for issues important to the Disabled American Veterans, it’s hardly surprising.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
