But wait, I thought Lynn wanted to drill? She would support this bill too then, right?
“I cannot tell you specifically the bill she would or would not have voted for since Lynn's not in Congress, but what I sent you before is the criteria she would follow,” said Josh Hersh in an e-mail to the Lawrence Journal-World.Oh, I see. You're willing to criticize others for voting for the bill, but not willing to say you would've voted against it. Brilliant.
Hersh did say that Jenkins would vote for a similar bill, as long as it was a compromise.
“Lynn would have voted for a compromise, bipartisan bill that was crafted by Republicans and Democrats. She would not have supported a political gimmick that's been declared dead on arrival by a Democrat senator.”But this bill IS a compromise!
The original bill called for allowing drilling 100 miles off the coast. Republicans wanted 25, so the bill was amended to 50. If this isn't compromise, I don't know what is.
