Democrats In Senate Reject Move to Block Greenhouse Gas Regs

Republican senators highlight the dangers of allowing the EPA to draft its own regulations on greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA's plan would result in lost jobs and burden American families and businesses with high energy taxes. Congress, not unaccountable federal bureaucrats, should be drafting carbon regulations.


Senate Rejects Move to Block Greenhouse Gas Regs

The vote was 53-47...........

53 Democrats rejected a bid by Republicans to block the new restrictions on American manufacturing!


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Senators turned back a resolution that would have rescinded the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.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

But the White House, which threatened to veto the measure, said depriving the EPA of its ability to regulate carbon and other greenhouse emissions would result in greater dependence on oil and more pollution.

Wild Thing's comment......

OMG these people HATE our country!!!! Between this and the adverse effect of the Gulf drilling ban, this is all too much to stand!!!

Watch them cram as much through as they can between now and November. Pray for our survival until then.

I sure hope all this being done by the dems and Obama can be changed back, and undone.

Everyone of those bastards should be taken out and shot. This is an issue for Congress to decide according to the Constitution but Adolf Obamas marxist led EPA will do it instead.

As Mark Levin stated yesterday, we just lost a little more of our liberty.

Now if Adolf and his cronies invent a major disaster just before the November elections and declares martial law, everyone will get a chance to use their special tools. Lets hope he's to fucking stupid to do something like that but the talking heads behind his throne are power hungry.

And then the bumper sticker I saw: "I (heart) my country, but I fear my government." So true!

You nailed it Eddie, another brick freedom has been removed. Although the Senate is too stupid to see it obama is usurping their power as well. He's angling for a dictattorship and he's well on his way to getting it. Unless we can change the makeup of the House then and that is dependent on the election, unless someone calls for "martial law" that should change it. With this bunch that would not surprise me.

Just one more good reason for "GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE" Check it out folks, and see if this is worth just a bit of your time, (and later on, some of your money, of course), as GOOOH builds its base to collectively clean house.
Trying something here. Maybe a widget, maybe a lot of gobbledygook:

cuchieddie, well said!!!! And great sticker you saw too, I feel exactly like that.

Mark, I agree, he wants dictatorship and so far he is getting his way.
