  • Panel Republicans Boycott Climate Change Bill

    The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee tried to overcome a Republican boycott of a major climate bill. Only one Republican senator even showed up for the meeting, and he stayed just long enough to ask for a five-week delay and more study. Senator Bernie Sanders lamented the obstruction tactics by what he called “the party of no.” The stalling strategy has so far blocked action on critical issues ranging from health care to global warming.  Sanders, the chairman of the Green Jobs and the New Economy Subcommittee, called the delaying tactics “a sad state of affairs.” The country, Sanders added, has gone from a electing a new president one year ago whose uplifting promise was “yes we can” to the spectacle of a small but stubborn rump group of senators whose motto is “no we won’t.” To watch Senator Sanders at the environment committee hearing, click here.
