The Chicago Tribune is reporting on how some Republican Congresspeople helped pass The American Clean Energy and Security Act. I know very little about it, but my guy, Mark Kirk, was one of those Republicans.
Kirk has had a rough time the past couple of elections, with the Democratic machine painting him as a lap dog of George W. Bush.
Kirk runs more conservative than I, but I pretty well trust him to be thoughtful and edumacated on stuff. He says that he read the entire 1,200 page bill.
