Hump Day Report: One Wild Wednesday
ALOHA, ALL!!! Lots happening in Congress today. As you know, even though Eric “Mr. Transparency” Holder made what he thought was a reasonable proposition to Darrell Issa yesterday, contempt proceedings against him are moving forward in the House. (Holder’s most excellent proposition to Issa: I’ll turn over some of the documents you want if you stop the hearings. Issa’s response to Holder: Fugeddaboutit!) No Deal: After Meeting, Isaa Says Contempt Vote On Holder Is Still On Of course, Barry has now decided – at the eleventh hour – to invoke Executive Privilege regarding the documents in question. Way to go, Preezy! You’re sounding more like Tricky Dick every day. In 2007 Obama sure felt differently about using Executive Privilege in this way:
One thing’s for sure – Holder is in trouble. When you hear Elijah Cummings saying stuff like this you know the writing’s on the wall. Hopefully it bites Barry in the butt as well:
Wednesday in Congress, Part II. While the House is “Fast and Furious” with Holder today, the Senate is voting on MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technology) an emissions control policy for businesses. This is the regulation that will kill the coal industry. Check it out: Obama’s War On Domestic Energy Production ”So stringent are the standards that potentially dozens of coal-fired power plants will close rather than incur the unsustainable costs of compliance. The EPA estimates the rule will cost $9.6 billion annually, to be paid by utilities and customers alike for new equipment, monitoring and reporting, loss of generating capacity, and higher electricity rates. Industry insiders consider the agency figures to be a lowball estimate.”
Final Thought: ”A public man must never forget that he loses his usefulness when he as an individual, rather than his policy, becomes the issue.” Richard M. Nixon
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
