Is the Louisville Ford Explorer in Trouble?
Instead, Beshear was in Dearborn, Michigan meeting with the leadership of Ford Motor Company. With him from Kentucky was Mayor Jerry Abramson of Metro Louisville. The Governor and Mayor were trying to head off an economic disaster this summer in Louisville.
Senator Jim Bunning, Republican of Kentucky, was the only lawmaker to vote “no” on the procedural motion on Tuesday afternoon, a “cloture” vote meant to begin formal consideration of the measures by the Senate. It easily attracted more than the 60 votes required to pass under Senate rules. The three major presidential candidates and two other senators were absent and did not vote on the measure.
It seems that Kentucky Senator Bunning didn’t read the “memo” that all his fellow senators were reading. Bunning was the only vote against a new effort to help middle class Americans cope with the home mortgage crisis. The Senate vote was 94 for and 1 against. No wonder Senator Bunning was voted the “worst” senator in America last year by a Newsweek poll. The full story is well covered by the New York Times.
