On First Visit to Springfield Since Stroke, Sen. Kirk Touts Rehab


U.S. Senator Mark Kirk is still showing obvious physical effects from a serious stroke well over a year ago.

 

But Kirk says he feels good... and is proof that physical rehab after a stroke works.

 

Now Kirk says he is working on legislation to make it easier for stroke victims to return to work with dignity after their illness.

 

The Illinois Republican also says he is trying to reduce the backlog of VA claims by disabled veterans.

 

But he still has concerns about the effects of Obamacare on small businesses.

 

Kirk's appearance at the State Fair Thursday marked his first visit to Springfield since his stroke.
