SLAUGHTER: I read my morning on the front page in the paper that eighty percent of the Marines who had died upper body wounds in Iraq would have lived had they had the proper body armor. I was outraged and said, we have to fix this.

ANNOUNCER: Louise Slaughter took on military contractors and forced the replacement of 16,000 pieces of body armor so that our troops can return home safe. Louise Slaughter takes on fights that no one else will—and wins them.

SLAUGHTER: I'm Louise Slaughter and I approve this message.
