This is not a Democrat-Republican issue. This is not about the fact that since KIrk is still voting, why couldn’t the Senate go ahead and ram healthcare legislation through Congress.  This act is about an unrepresentative Congress. Perhaps some Massachusetts voters could argue that Kirk’s vote still represents their views, but it doesn’t change the fact that this one vote affects how every American is represented in Congress.

Breitbart’s BigGovernment covers the issue very well here. It is spelled out that once Scott Brown (R-Ma) was elected, Kirk became a non-member of Congress. Regardless of the support or opposition to whatever legislation Kirk is voting on, members of both parties should have not allowed the vote.

Logic leads one to conclude that the Republicans have not opposed Mr. Kirk’s voting because it allows some of them to actually not have to vote yes on unpopular and insane legislation that they really support.
