This one really upsets me. We all owe our soldiers a debt of gratitude, especially those who have been wounded in battle. That includes those who have suffered psychological injuries like post-traumatic stress disorder.

Doctors suggest a safe environment, counseling, and sometimes medication for people going through this ordeal. Instead, the GOP leadership is shipping them back out onto the front lines, as this CBS report documents. That's not only horrific for the soldier with PTSD, but it places everybody around him or her at risk.

Wonder how many people with "Support Our Troops" ribbons on their cars know what they're voting for when they vote Republican?
