Veepstakes: Bloomberg criticizes all three

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hit all three active presidential candidates for their inability to stand up to special interests all the time. "All three are senators. I think if you look at their voting records, all three have shown instances where they have stood up to special interests and, sadly, all three have also signed on to a lot of these special-interest bills,' the mayor said, though he did not provide any specific examples."

"Mayor Bloomberg delivered his evaluation at a news conference that followed his keynote address at the World Science Summit, a gathering of scientists, academics, entrepreneurs and government officials at Columbia University. In the address, he challenged Congress to lift all tariffs on biofuels like sugar-based ethanol, which he said is cheaper to produce and generates less carbon dioxide than the corn-based ethanol made in the United States."
