Two political veterans groups, one conservative, the other liberal, have spent millions fighting each other on various fronts, from Department of Veterans Affairs reform — what one group calls "choice" and the other calls "privatization" — to getting their pick of candidates into office.
But they've found common ground on at least one issue: It's time for Congress to have an open debate about ending the Forever Wars.
In the months since the election, the ad rates for MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” have more than doubled. The reason: President Donald Trump is a fan. If you want his attention, you have to pay for it. Which means VoteVets, a veterans political action committee, must’ve dished out a lot of dough to let the new president know that they do not approve of him.
