Jon Kyl

Jon Kyl has defended bonus payments for executives of AIG, bailed out by the Bush administration. Kyl is clearly out of touch with the average American, and he should resign his Senate seat in disgrace.

Kyl did not become a neocon overnight. No, back in 2003, he and John Cornyn sponsored S.887, which sought to tax the attorneys attempting to obtain justice for the victims of 9/11 by suing the Saudi royal family.

Back then, when it suited him, he was all for a retroactive tax. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and he's having an uphill struggle to defend his bailed out friends. Back then, it was quite clear that Kyl was a true friend of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, partial sponsors of one of the worst terrorist attacks in history.
