Vultures Row: John Kerry's Kerfuffle

John Kerry's Kerfuffle


The 7 accomplishments of Senator John Forbs Kerry

First off Hat Tip to for the story.

John Kerry claimed he passed 56 bills. President Bush retorted that he is only aware of five. Fact Check looked up the bills.

S.791: Authorizes $53 million over four years to provide grants to woman-owned small businesses. (1999)
S.1206: Names a federal building in Waltham, Massachusetts after Frederick C. Murphy, who was killed in action during World War II and awarded (posthumously) the Medal of Honor. (1994)
S.1636: A save-the-dolphins measure aiming “to improve the program to reduce the incidental taking of marine mammals during the course of commercial fishing operations.” (1994)
S.1563: Funding the National Sea Grant College Program, which supports university-based research, public education, and other projects “to promote better understanding, conservation and use of America’s coastal resources.” (1991)
S.423: Granting a visa and admission to the U.S. as a permanent resident to Kil Joon Yu Callahan. (1987)

The following two bills were introduced by Kerry but were approved after being slightly changed in the house. Kerry did approve of the changes and the bills are basically what he had intended.

H.R.1900 (S.300): Awarded a congressional gold medal to Jackie Robinson (posthumously), and called for a national day of recognition. (2003)
H.R.1860 (S.856): Increased the maximum research grants for small businesses from $500,000 to $750,000 under the Small Business Technology Transfer Program. (2001)

This is the actual record of John Forbs Kerry concerning his twenty year senate career. It is this kind of legislative vision we can expect from this intellectual nuanced leader. It is hard to imagine how this nation would have made it with out Jackie Robinson day or if Kil Joon Yu Callahan was not a permanent resident, in fact I shudder at the thought. What a kerfuffle.
