From Michelle Malkin
From Lamar’s Office:
“Senator Alexander did not vote because he is home in Tennessee recuperating from surgery to remove a cyst from his back. If he had been present he would have voted no. In a statement the Senator said, “I am deeply concerned about the challenges facing Tennesseans in the auto industry, but I have a primary obligation to protect all taxpayers. Government involvement may have some role in the solution here, but putting a government that can’t run itself very well in charge of running big car companies makes no sense– and that’s exactly what this bill would have done.”
SlaterRaider Josh wrote me an E-mail last night, “His staff told me this morning that he hadn’t stated a position yet.”
Hear what the SlaterRaiders thought of Senator Corker’s Amendment here.
