Bunning speaks to 5th district

Sen. Jim Bunning warned a friendly crowd at the 5th district Republican Lincoln dinner that President Obama is trying to pay back the people who helped Democrats take control of the federal government by passing "card check" legislation.

Bunning said new debt in the "stimulus" and "bailout" plans won't help the economy and that he will continue to oppose those policies and promote lower taxes and smaller government.

Reporters from Lexington Herald Leader, Louisville Courier Journal, Associated Press, and CNHI News Service who came here for fireworks or gaffes didn't get much.
