"Congress stood idly by while our government experimented on the men and women who've fought for our country and our freedom. It's an absolute outrage. The brave Hoosiers returning to the Fourth District look to their Congressman for leadership and protection. Steve Buyer has been in office for 16 years and claims to have veterans' interests at heart, but he didn't exercise the oversight available to him."
-- Indiana's Fourth District Congressional candidate Nels Ackerson calling for an investigation into the Department of Veterans Affairs' practice of testing dangerous experimental drugs on war veterans in exchange for small cash payments. Ackerson's opponent, Congressman Steve Buyer, the ranking Republican on the House Veterans Affairs Committee, did nothing to oppose the experimental testing.
