VoteVets Fights the Reps

American flag and dog tags VoteVets.org, America's largest group of progressive veterans, has launched a $2 million TV ad campaign airing in seven states and in Washington, D.C. to fight America’s oil dependence.

The campaign is the largest ever undertaken by the group, and is a direct response to the oil industry's recent revelation that it spent $159 million in 2009 to lobby Congress against a clean-energy bill. The group says the U.S. is funding both sides of the war on terror in the Middle East, and that oil money has killed U.S. troops.
