Stabenow is squirming under the heat of this EPA vote so much that she is working on her own amendment. Her amendment seeks to delay EPA regulation of CO2 for two years. Interestingly enough, that is exactly the amount of time needed to campaign for her next term.
Right now, there are three Democrat amendments that are serving as cover amendments for the McConnell/Manchin bipartisan amendment. Rockefeller, Baucus, and now Stabenow each want to obfuscate and implement Cap and Trade.
The Detroit Free Press reports,
"U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow is proposing a two-year delay in the enforcement of new greenhouse gas regulations proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a move that could help moderate Democrats with business interests in their states while denying a Republican attempt to derail EPAs plans to regulate carbon emissions altogether."
Why doesn't Stabenow just vote for Rockefeller's amendment? His is a two year delay deal. She wants to be the author of this one because she knows she is Ag Committee chair, and if she doesn't try to make a big deal out of this amendment, ie. offering it herself, she will lose face. She can't just vote for someone elses amendment, that wouldn't be big enough. No, right now, she is trying to concoct an amendment all on her own to really be the bestest ever.
But, the bestest ever is being offered by McConnell, and Stabenow has to vote for his bipartisan amendment, or she loses re-election, it's that simple.
The National Association of Manufacturers is running ads in Michigan, targeted at Levin and Stabenow.
Hmm. Manufacturers are asking Stabenow to vote with McConnell, and she is offering her own amendment to delay, delay, delay.
She is now going offer her own amendment (same as Rockefeller's) seems to be worried ya think?
Stabenow can be “encouraged” to comply.
Perhaps "dangerously incompetent."
Stabenow is a PIG! Typical Liberal.
She is my personal “target”. I email her a couple times a week, tell her how I think she should vote, and how I’m loving working on the campaign to end her political career. She is a stupid useless cow, IMO
She is thinning down and knows she is a target.
she has lost 45 Lbs. She lives close by.
If you wish to be added to or removed from the Michigan ping list, please post or FReepmail me.
I figured she did, less of her, not less of a lib though.
I heard a rumor that former Gov. Engler is coming back to Michigan and may run against her.
If he does...she is toast.
That is GRRRRRRRRREAT! Thank you very much, kevslisababy!
We’ve all got to do our part!
When I emailed her today, I told her that when I talk to people about her next election I pull out all the letters she has sent me claiming pride for her part of the “healthcare reform” mess so they can make informed choices.
“she has lost 45 Lbs” Tell the cow to turn around and look behind her, she will find it!
Is her husband the one that was caught with another woman or was he paying for sex??????
Anyone who voted for Granholm with male parts (Snyder) is not worth the time or the substance to worry about the direction the socialist state of Mikhganistan is going!
Stabmenow is just one product of the socialist who vote for this kind of $hit to represent their interests in government. Lead head levin is another. Go figure!
