Retired Major General Paul Eaton, who served more than 30 years in the U.S. Army, blasts Republican Senate candidates Sharron Angle (NV), Ken Buck (CO), and Pat Toomey (PA):

Not only have Republicans offered no solutions for wars abroad, they're failing veterans, too. Despite lofty rhetoric about supporting the troops, Senate candidates Sharron Angle and Buck have proposed privatizing the Department of Veterans Affairs. And when he was in Congress, Pennsylvania candidate Pat Toomey voted down $1,500 bonuses for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, calling them "wasteful" spending.

America deserves civilian leaders who have taken the time to learn about the world we live in, who will send our young men and women to war only to protect American interests, and who will take care of those who serve when they come home.
