Illinois Republican Senate candidate Mark Kirk still has a primary to get through--he needs to energize voters who were massively disappointed by his vote for big government cap and tax, which would do nothing substantive for the environment. His latest comments are a step in the right direction--to the center I might add. We need a firm commitment to oppose this bill and future misguided efforts which will only add to our deficit, kill American jobs, and exacerbate the problem of energy dependence.
Lefties are going after him on another issue, but Kirk's vote against the high-speed rail boondoggle is a good one, fiscally sound on the merits.
P.S. Chicago Daily Observer highlights my earlier Kirk post:) It's Tuesday so Mark Kirk is Against Cap-and-Trade Tax
