Good Talk Russ!

Russ Feingold, who lost a seat in the Senate five years ago, has decided he wants back in. A relic of a bygone era, Feingold declared in his announcement web video (that he was sure to point out was shot in Wisconsin and not California, where he spends most of his time) that he wants to continue his work of increasing taxes, voting for cap-and-trade, and opposing all free trade agreements.

Here’s a quick refresher on Feingold’s greatest hits from his Senate career:

Feingold wanted a more liberal version of ObamaCare implemented:

“Unfortunately, the lack of support from the administration made keeping the public option in the bill an uphill struggle. Removing the public option from the Senate bill is the wrong move…”

Feingold has consistently voted to increase taxes. For example, this time. Also this. This. This. This. This. And, oh yeah, this.

As if that wasn’t enough, he voted for cap-and-trade, too.

On top of that, Feingold voted against all free trade agreements since 1993. That includes NAFTA, and agreements with Africa, China, Chile, Singapore, Australia, Morocco, Central America, Vietnam, and Peru. One might infer from his past obstructionism, that he might also oppose President Obama’s bipartisan TPP trade bill, as well.
