Iraq Vet to McCain: "How About 1,000 Years of Affordable Health Care?" [VIDEO]
VoteVets unveiled a new ad yesterday as part of a campaign, questioning McCain's desire to stay in Iraq for a thousand years. In the ad, Rose Forrest -- an Iraq war veteran -- asks: "How about a thousand years of affordable health care? Or a thousand years of keeping America safe? Can we afford that for my child, Senator McCain? Or have you already promised to spend trillions of our dollars... in Baghdad?" Watch it to your right.
A new poll of swing voters commissioned by US Action found that a huge majority -- 69 percent of them -- support ending the war and reinvesting in health care and new clean energy jobs. A recent AP poll found that 68 percent of Americans believe pulling our troops out of Iraq would help a great deal or somewhat in addressing our faltering economy.
