From a National Journal interview of Sen. Mark Kirk:

NJ: Has this experience changed how you see health care?

KIRK: My concern is what happens if you have a stroke and you're not in the U.S. Senate and you have no insurance and no income. That's the question that I have been asking, and the reality is that if you're on Illinois Medicaid and are a stroke survivor, you will get just five visits to the rehab specialist. That's it. Senator [Tim] Johnson [D-S.D.] and I are working on a stroke agenda.


So if you have a stroke and get cancer, only the stroke will be covered. Because that's what Kirk had.



NJ: You were in military intelligence. From what you know about these NSA programs, do you have real concerns?

KIRK: I do. It's bad intelligence work to be focusing in on 121 million Americans who aren't doing anything particularly terrorist-related.

NJ: Did the NSA go in this direction on its own, or was it just doing what Congress authorized?

KIRK: Just because you brief eight people in a windowless room doesn't mean that Congress supports you. Congress supports you through open debate and the involvement of the American people through the 24-hour news cycle.



NJ: How do you think Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is doing?

KIRK: Well. Really well. I've only known him since he was elected to the House. And I think he's doing a very good job.


So the mayor's Republican support is holding.


The NSA probably has information about you even if you aren't a target.
