Posted on 11/19/2008 12:45:42 PM PST by SmithL
WASHINGTON --- In a major win for environmentalists, a committee of House Democratic leaders on Wednesday voted to put Rep. Henry Waxman in charge of a key panel that will have oversight over global warming issues in the new Congress.
The House Steering committee voted 25-22 to put the California Democrat in charge of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, replacing Michigan Democratic Rep. John Dingell, the most senior member in the House.
The House Democratic caucus will vote on Thursday.
The Waxman-Dingell battle has been closely watched on Capitol Hill. Waxman is regarded as an ally of environmentalists while Dingell has ties to the auto industry. He has resisted higher fuel standards and tighter limits on greenhouse gases.

Moonbats win one.
The Sky Is Officially Falling
He's a representative from Michigan. What ties did they expect him to have?
They will finish killing the golden goose, and will roast him in a environmentally approved oven.............
In a secret ballot, of course. This is something that is too good for unions.
No man enters; no man leaves...
Any way they can both lose?
This is like demon hell dogs going at each other. All clawing and biting for the choice seats in hell.
In this particular post, this switch is a disaster. Dingell at least tried to keep industry alive, even if for corrupt reasons. Waxman has no such interests. Major economic damage will be done under his leadership. And the party will support him, as this vote demonstrates.
the good news is the left is setting the table to WAY over-reach. We need to do are part and be prepared to communicate that to the American people.
The Democrat House Steering Committee: We Don’t Judge A Man By The Color Of His Skin. We Judge Him...By The Size Of His Nostrils.
He and the Frankster are perfect Commies to run the ship aground.
When we finally re-take this nation, it will incur much, much pain to the Left.
This is change they can believe in
"Are they, like, the ones with the scissors, who turn bulls into steers?", said an Obama voter.
To all GM stockholders: SELL!
Nostrildamus sees great climate change in our future.
Dingell refused to carry the global warming water for the Congressional Marxists. Hence, he has to go.
