    Remember when Tsongas was number one in CONgress in not attending Committee Meetings? IIRC, something like 96% of them she missed. Good times. As a Veteran, I wish they found a better speaker for this event. Niki has never met a NDAA/war funding Bill she didn’t like, and her DoD contractor donors thank her for it. The folks actually sent to die and become maimed & injured, not so much.
