But McCormick didn’t go away when Gard did. In 2010, she’s back – and she’s remade herself as a small-“l” libertarian candidate of the TEA party right.
Is this an honest representation of her governing philosophy? I would argue that it is not. Luckily, McCormick served in the legislature for several years in the early 2000’s and left a voting record for us to examine.
On her website, McCormick states the following in regard to alternative energy:
The ultimate goal of reducing energy costs, eliminating dependence on foreign oil, and increasing efficiency for the consumer can only occur with less government intervention, more competition, and fewer taxes on producers.
I agree. However, her voting record tells a different story.
Be sure to check out the rest at the link. A very interesting development to say the least.
I'm happy to listen to a substantive rebuttal by the McCormick folks, if they can provide one.
