Truly one of the best speeches I've seen delivered by a member of Congress fighting for his constituents. Thaddeus McCotter, Republican from Michigan's 11th District, spoke in support of the $14 billion auto industry bridge loan. The legislation passed the House late yesterday 237-170, but faces a massive uphill climb in the U.S. Senate due to resistance from Senate Republicans many of whom are Southern legislators whose states are populated by foreign automakers. McCotter's impassioned 8 & 1/2 minute speech is all the more impressive since it was delivered extemporaneously.
