Senate rejects move to block greenhouse gas regs
AP ^ | 6/10/10 | JIM ABRAMS

Posted on 06/10/2010 1:44:10 PM PDT by Kartographer

The Senate has rejected a bid to stop the Obama administration from imposing regulations on greenhouse gases, giving a boost to President Barack Obama as he pursues broader clean energy legislation.

Senators turned back a resolution that would have rescinded the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.

Supporters of the measure, mostly Republicans, argued that the EPA had usurped the authority of Congress to set climate policy and that the EPA regulations would increase energy costs and kill jobs.

I can’t believe enough dim’s and rino’s haven’t realized AGW is a fraud, or at least that they are ending their own careers.

I was curious if they had a lot more or a few more than we did.

Is anyone surprised? I’m not. They know their time is limited. Watch them cram as much through as they can between now and November. Pray for our survival until then. And thank God we are a nation of laws, that can be undone!

Next congressional term this should be item number one, right ahead of repealing Obamacare.

Defund the EPA and these other phony cabinet departments.

What are you surprised?

Of course the energy price spike will be blamed on big oil, not meddling politicians.

Politicians have wonderful jobs - always treated like experts and their f**k ups are always blamed on someone else....

Bummer.

Maybe there is one silver lining- Obama owns this now, and the failed recovery that results will be his problem.

“Bayh, Landrieu, Lincoln, Nelson, Pryor, Rockefeller”

All but Bayh worried about their re-election and Bayh most likely worried about his Presidential run in 2012.

He has no conscience or soul and seems to care less about the results of his actions. He's a tool of the Soro's machine and operates guilt-free, with no concern about his legacy.

I am sure by now he’s already has plans for a retirement home/library in Kenya after he leaves office.

The Obama administration would be smart to avoid legislation and rules that have even a remote possibility of slowing the economy. Voters aren’t interested in economy-slowers now.

Well, you are right...laws aren’t frequently ‘undone’ so much as made obsolete by new laws/regulations. Occasionally, regulations are lifted...but you make a valid point. The laws are so convoluted now, nobody knows what’s going on.

November...Vote ‘em all out.

The Obama administration would be smart to avoid legislation and rules that have even a remote possibility of slowing the economy.

On the contrary they are rejecting the Texas refinery permit in an ongoing stonewall (this vote was partly about that rejection). They have been fighting Texas since last year on the permit and are now threatening to revoke all of Texas regulatory authority.

Texas reacting to latest EPA rejection: http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/comm_exec/communication/media/5-10flinthillsreact
EPA threat: http://www.austinchronicle.com/gyrobase/Issue/story?oid=oid%3A1037383

The simple fact is the Obama administration doesn't care what voters think especially since they completely control the media on issues like this.
