Senate Democrats Defeat GOP Efforts to Block the EPA (and Obama) From Destroying Our Country

Statement of Purpose: To prohibit the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from promulgating any regulation concerning, taking action relating to, or taking into consideration the emission of a greenhouse gas to address climate change.

Vote Counts: YEAs 50 ........ NAYs 50

Senate Democrats defeated a Republican effort to block the EPA from destroying American industry. All but 4 democrats voted in favor of industry-crippling regulations that will obliterate US manufacturing.

Here is the ROLL CALL List of names and the State they are from.

Senate Democrats have defeated a Republican effort to ban the Environmental Protection Agency from controlling the gases blamed for global warming.

In a 50-50 vote, the Senate rejected a measure by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma. It would have repealed a 2009 finding by federal scientists that climate change caused by greenhouse gases endangers human health and prevented the agency from using existing law to regulate them. The amendment – to a small business bill – needed 60 votes to pass.

The Republican-controlled House is expected to pass an identical bill later Wednesday. The White House has threatened to veto it

Wild Thing's comment........

On Tuesday Obamoa issued a formal statement opposing a bill and said he would veto it if they did not vote how he wanted it to go. Pressure much??!! ..... to more of the dems that might have voted with the Republicans. Obama wants this EPA bullcrap so he can control our lives more and more. That is his dream and our nightmare.

The dems in the Senate have declared economic war on the citizens of the United States.

Once the Dems destroy manufacturing & the energy industies for good, they’ll regulate farming to its death as well.

We’ll then have to get on boats & go find a new land....or get rid of democrats. Do the terrorists have a hot line???? Just kidding.....sort of. No just kidding. wait are my fingers crossed?

The other day we were eating out and I said something like I wished the terrorists would bomb the democrats and as soon as I said it the couple at the table next to us put their thumbs up and the man said, we agree and we can always rebuild. His wife said, we feel the same way. LOL

Hopefully in 2012 we will get a new president and more conservatives elected and they will help overturn any cap and trade bill that is enacted by obama. The EPA needs to be reined in and relegated to just being a study group, not a regulatory agency.

The EPA is one of those agencies that tries to control everything a company tries to do. This is one of the reasons so many companies have moved over seas it is less expensive to do business. They actually make a profit which is why they are in business.

Mark, thank you for the information. I sure can't blame a company from moving away to survive. It is sad and an outrage that they have to do this because of the liberals grrrrr.
