House Republicans Eliminating Global Warming Committee
HotAirPundit ^ | DECEMBER 1, 2010 | HotAirPundit

Boehner spokesman: "The Select Committee on Global Warming is unnecessary and taxpayers will not have to fund it in the 112th Congress"

Members of the House of Representatives will not be pondering global warming on Speaker John A. Boehner’s watch.

Republicans plan to eliminate the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, which was created by the current speaker, Nancy Pelosi, in 2007 to examine climate change and press for possible caps on carbon dioxide emissions.

Climate change matters are overseen by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as well as the Natural Resources Committee; the select committee did not pass legislation but did hold hearings, which will cease in the new Congress.

Defund the EPA, who are now making new rules for “greenhouse gas emissions”, etc., to accomplish the Global Warming/UN-appeasing handouts to 3rd world asshats for “damages”, to be funded by taking American Taxpayer wealth and re-distributing it globally, to the “needy”.

Meh.

Show us the “Repeal Healthcare Reform”, “Cut 400,000 Fedgov Jobs”, Deport All Illegal Aliens and Build The Wall”, and “Eliminate Federal Government Unions” committes and I’ll be impressed.

It's just an UNNECESSARY overlapping committee where the Dems could do their dirty behind closed doors.

Boehner flying commercial and this?

Boehner just shot up a few points in my opinion of him.

The speakership is his to use ... or to abuse. He’s made a couple of good decisions already.

Well, that certainly won't help global warming.

Does anyone else find it amusing that this story comes to us via Hot Air Pundit?

I agree with you.Talk is cheap.

Now how about some departments, like those they promised in the 1994 revolution.

The Department of Commerce, the Department of Education and a more recent useless monster bureaucracy, Homeland Security

This one was rushed into creation after 9/11 to force the CIA and the FBI to corporate and share vital intelligent information [like that on the 9/11 terrorists that they didn't] instead of jealously guarding it from each other while Ameicans die.

This they to give them leg up on each other will competing for annual Congressional funding of taxpayer dollars.

Of course after creation of this white elephant, because of much wailing and gnashing of teeth they where left out from under the jurisdiction of HS which we still got anyway.

Also let's not forget FEMA whose specialty is hiring Blackwater to disarm old women home owning Hurricane victims who have been abandoned by their police force and left at the mercy of looters.

Exactly!

And like I have said before, as a retired teacher of 43 years, I will love the day when the Department of Education and the NEA Union are gone forever!

Boehner is playing a strong hand well. Reagan said “Trust but verify”, but for these RINOs I would shorten that to “..verify”. Boehner has sold us out to the bankers once and under pressure he will do it again someday. They already admitted they wont do anything unpopular like get rid of the Obama-care exclusion mandates.

In the mean time I celebrate Boehner crushing Democrats politically and passing stuff the liberals hate, and watching them turn on Obama for signing it. I called Boehner's office before the election and advised him to hold hearings on the Economic Recovery Act Stimulus waste and Obama-care bribes. But that was already on their list.
