Sen. Mark Kirk Releases Policy Video

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released a video attacking state lawmakers for failing to make a move on pensions, allowing the state's credit rating to be downgraded. While it raises some policy questions, it raises another in particular: Could this could mean the senator is on his way back to work?

Kirk has not made a public appearance since he suffered a stroke in January. However he has appeared on video several times detailing his recovery process and addressing Illinois Republicans by video at the RNC last month. This is the first time since his stroke he has discussed policy issues, though.
