    Politics: The Senate just claimed the title of the world's most delusional body by refusing to strip unelected EPA bureaucrats of the power to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant. This was the day freedom died. One wonders why we have a Congress at all. The 53 profiles in cowardice that could not get a cap-and-tax bill through the U.S. Senate voted Thursday to let the Environmental Protection Agency keep the unprecedented power Congress did not expressly give it. It is power that the EPA arrogated to itself through regulation to control every aspect of the American economy and our...

    Overregulation: The Senate votes on blocking a government bureaucracy from usurping power never delegated to it by Congress. This administration may put Copenhagen above the Constitution, but we the people have other plans. The GOP's 1994 "Contract with America," a gift that keeps on giving, hopefully will rescue us once again from the clutches of an unelected bureaucracy, the Environmental Protection Agency, which has been allowed by the Supreme Court to regulate every breath we take and every machine we operate. When cap-and-tax legislation was introduced in Congress, the Obama administration threatened that if Congress failed to act, the EPA...

    The Obama administration intends to bypass Congress and implement outrageous global warming regulation of the entire U.S. economy through the EPA. Many of you have helped us put tens of thousands of comments into the EPA, but they aren't listening. We need Congress to step in and stop the EPA power-grab, by sending a clear message to our elected officials: if you don't stop the EPA, we will hold you responsible for what they do.

  • GOP Senators to Look Into Gay Marriage Ban

    WASHINGTON (AP)--Determined to stop gay marriages, Republican senators said Wednesday they will move later this month to consider several versions of a constitutional amendment to block the same-sex unions. But opponents on both sides of the political aisle said supporters fall far short of the votes needed in the House and Senate to amend the constitution. And any attempt to do so, said Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., is a ``divisive political exercise'' aimed at influencing this year's election. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said the recent scenes of gay couples marrying in San Francisco and New York are starting to resonate...
