A few days ago, I wrote an article entitled “Kerry’s Almost, Kinda-Sorta Leadership on Climate Change, Not Quite Enough” http://www.bluemassg… I stated that I support the Boxer-Sanders Global Warming Pollution Reduction Act as does Senator Kennedy and 16 other U.S. Senators. Senator Kerry has proposed a weaker piece of legislation to stop global warming.
Later, on the very same day my article was posted, USA Today reported Senator Kerry was the one Senator who received the most Automaker PAC money in the last several years–$232,509 http://www.usatoday….
In 2005, the Senate voted on stricter fuel economy standards in an amendment by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. It was defeated by a vote of 67-28 as reported by USA Today http://www.usatoday…. In this 2005 vote, Senator Kerry voted against stricter fuel economy standards.
On yesterday’s Huffington Post, James Boyce, commented on this vote by Senator Kerry as well as the fact that only 6 U.S. Senators bothered to read the 92 page, National Intelligence Estimate report prior to voting on the Iraq war resolution http://www.huffingto… John Kerry joined 48 Republicans in voting to authorize military action in Iraq. Senator Kennedy did not.
I have called upon Mr. Kerry to donate the entire $15m left in the 2004 Presidential Campaign Fund to Charitable Veterans’ Groups http://www.edoreilly… but Mr. Kerry has not responded to date. This money was earmarked for a Democratic victory in the Presidential Election of 2004 and not meant to promote Senator Kerry’s own personal, political ambitions.
