Kind votes against constituents on climate change bill
Placeholder Image
I was surprised to see Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wis., vote in favor of the Waxman-Markley Climate Change bill (H.R. 2454). As drafted in the House, the bill negatively impacts Midwest residents, transferring billions of dollars to the coasts, and potentially thrusting a knife in the economy of our state.The bill passed the House on a vote of 219-212, with 44 Democrats in the House voting "no."
