A question that should be asked: Would a Kerry Adminstration veto the Induce Act?
According to johnkerry.com,
“the possibilities for progress … are limitless… but they won’t be realized under a government that stifles the creativity and entrepreneurship that will produce the next big idea; that lets politics and ideology trump progress and science.”
