The GOP Controll Congress And Its Time To Pay Back Their Energy Industry Funding Machine
The GOP controlled Congress is quickly moving to reward its energy industry sponsors. They have two immediate plans to do so. The House, which has control over the budget, will move to reduce funding for the Environmental Protection Agency which is using its regulatory authority to reduce carbon emissions. The head of the House Committee that overseas energy policy is a climate change skeptic who has published a book that is popular in the GOP base, which includes many who also do not believe in the theory of evolution. The GOP will also push forward proposals to approve the Keystone Pipeline which will move dirty oil from Canada and northern states to New Orleans.
