Video from Mark Kirk: Thanks for being patient while I recover

“I want to thank everyone especially for the patience they have given me to recover from a big stroke,” said Sen Kirk in the video. He also thanked his doctors and nurses, and the people of Illinois “for granting me the honor to represent them in the United States Senate.” He added a policy note: “I cannot wait to get back to work to vote to spend less, borrow less and tax less to fix our economy.”
