Yes, 38 Republicans and 1 Democrat want to leave our troops unprotected.

Yes, that's right. The war party, the party of "faith and values," the patriotic party, the party of Bush and Cheney.

38 of 56 Republican senators voted no to give troops the armored Humvees they need to be adequately protected.

Please remember this outrage at election time.
