From Stephen Lendman, posted at his blog:
As US senator, his voting record told all. He supported power and big monied interests. He backed commodifying public education. He stood by medical providers in wrongful injury suits.
He opposed capping credit card interest rates. Mining companies loved him. He endorsed strip mining everywhere, including on public land.
He supported huge energy company subsidies, vastly expanded nuclear power, deregulation, harmful biofuels, other agribusiness interests, GMO food proliferation, and privatized healthcare.
He stood solidly for corporate friendly trade agreements, fraudulent financial deals, expanding America’s prison-industrial complex, repressive immigration legislation, police state laws, military tribunals, spying and secrecy, controlling the media, and he was still just a senator.
Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) executive director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard said he “eviserat(ed)” civil and human rights. He exceeded the worst of Bush. He silenced acquiescent liberals. They support someone they should condemn.
