    The 53 Senators that Voted to slice another Piece of Liberty From *YOU*

    ________________________________________


    Is the EPA In Charge of Our Economic Future? <FOX NEWS

    [Snip]

    "A crucial vote to block the EPA’s global warming power grab scheme is coming up in the Senate this afternoon. It's called "Senate Joint Resolution 26" ("SJ Res 26," is also called the Murkowski Resolution for its lead sponsor) and it would block and overturn the EPA’s global warming regulations.

    Despite the Democratic majority in the Senate, the White House and Majority Leader Harry Reid have been in a desperate scramble to stop the resolution. The White House issued a veto threat and has dispatched top officials to the Hill to pressure Democratic senators.

    Reid is now considering allowing a vote on an alternative two-year delay to avoid the embarrassment of a permanent overturn of EPA regulations passing the Senate. In the end, even if the extraordinary efforts of the White House prevail, this vote will, like health care, have devastating political consequences for senators on the wrong side of their constituents.

    These regulations were originally devised by White House climate czar Carol Browner in the 1990s, when she was EPA administrator. At the time it was seen as a way to force action on global warming despite the fact that Congress and the American people did not want it.

    The idea was to shoehorn global warming regulations from the 1970s Clean Air Act -- an idea that seemed crazy until the Supreme Court opened the door for it with their decision in "Massachusetts v. EPA" in 2007. That 5-4 decision instructed the EPA to decide whether or not to pursue global warming regulation based on the language of the statute.

    In a better world, the EPA would have reacted to the court by citing the enormous administrative burden and absurd results of trying to fashion a national global warming program out of Clean Air Act programs designed for a very different problem. Then it would have decided against regulation.

    Sadly, we don’t live in that world. Instead, the Obama administration’s EPA decided to apply the full force of the Clean Air Act to carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and simply ignore the inconvenient requirements of the law. In effect, the EPA has promoted itself to a position as super-legislature of the United States, arbitrarily rewriting the law to suit its purposes."

    [/SNIP]

    So in other words? These Senators Voted to usurp their own power into an unelected BODY controlled by the POTUS...to make decisions regarding enviromental decisions.

    Decisions of the magnitude that are better LEFT to the legislature especially when it comes to LAW that affects your lifestyle.

    This election cycle is crucial folks...you have Legislators usurping their own power...and whittling away YOUR Liberty by their usurpation. I guess there are too many 'Back Room Deals' to be negotiated between tham and OBAMA...for them to be responding to that will garner them a LIFE better than those they are SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT?

    How about trying a little bit of honesty. Allowing the EPA to regulate greenhouse gasses is nothing more than an end run around the Constitution to implement Cap and Trade, which will have far reaching economic effects. An unelected body like the EPA should not be given the power to have that kind of influence over the entire country.

    Since all you can offer is absurd hyperbole, I have a feeling that you know this as well.

    Exactly. It was along party lines to vote against the VOICE of the people...and another glaring REASON the 17th Amendment needs to be abolished.

    Since they don't seem to want the work load WE pay them for. I'd be happy to take that power out of their feeble hands and restore it to the people.

    THANK YOU for your honesty.
