Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Jim Bunning, Geoff Davis,
Brett Guthrie, Hal Rogers and Ed Whitfield opposed the $787 billion
stimulus that would fund projects like the battery plant. Well they won
and Kentuckians lost.
Of course Anne Northup won't be without a high paying government job, Senator Mitch McConnell took care of her. Some folks believe Senator Mitch McConnell traded the Battery plant off to get his pal Anne Northup a plum job on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Thanks Mitch!
