Senate Preserves EPA’s Global Warming Power Grab

In Harry Reid’s Senate, it’s rare to see recorded votes on important issues. Usually, important conservative policy priorities gets buried. Thus, the April 6th roll call vote on the EPA’s destructive global warming regulations is a sign that conservative pressure on Congress worked.

Unfortunately, the Senate rejected the EPA Amendment on a 50-50 vote. The McConnell Amendment needed 60 votes to proceed.

All but one Republican voted for the amendment, while most Democrats opposed it. Five Senators crossed party lines:

Voting yes: Manchin D-WV, Nelson D-NE, Pryor D-AR, Landrieu D-LA.
Voting no: Collins, R-ME.

The EPA’s power is not absolute. The American people rejected cap and trade – a fact recognized by the previous Democrat-dominated Congress. Among other efforts, including stringent oversight, the House is set to pass the Upton EPA Bill (HR 910), which is identical to the defeated Senate amendment.

  1. While not unexpected, it is disappointing nonetheless. That said, I shall keep up the pressure from my end. When combined with others, we may achieve critical mass one of these days and be surprised.

  3. I still say I find it hard to believe the EPA itself and it’s regulations are unconstitutional. I wish someone would verify my thoughts and bring it forth publicly! Obama & Soros are taking this nation down every step they take.
    When Obama took office he refused to give up his blackberry, he was finally given permission to keep it. Realize this was the way he kept in touch with Soros and Soros is telling him what to do! If you check how often Soros goes to the WH, then look at the conferences Soros is having, it makes you realize, the One World Govt and Money on coming totally into play.
    I also firmly believe Obama (his color doesn’t matter damnit) should be impeached or forced to resign due to NOT keeping his oath of office, going against the Constitution, authorizing funds, Libya, czars. He’s not going thru Congress. He’s the president of the United States of America, his preferred race of color, doesn’t matter, it’s the fact he’s the leader of the free world and is totally abusing his power!! He wants to be a dictator, give pep rallies and is a total disgrace to this nation.
    Please tell me why NO ONE is bringing impeachment up! He hasn’t done one thing GOOD for this nation since taking office and is always going against us. It’s totally inexcusable, in appropriate and done on purpose.
    Why wasn’t his hands smacked for obligating $2B, to Brazil without permission. Money we don’t have and Soros has enough money to give Brazil instead of us. Obama’s drumming up the jobs there that should be done here!, WHY aren’t the Republicans going to bring these issues up!?
    Wake up America, we’re losing ground and it’s like a steamroller out of control!
    I agree with Donald Trump on Obama’s birth. Soros bought off everyone possible and got him in office. The news media was bought off and the democrate party was bought off. It’s as plain as day and NO ONE is mentioning it.
    If you really want to think about it, Glenn Beck probably started losing sponsers, because Soros paid to not sponser him. Soros has been after Beck and Fox News.
    We as MUST pray and ask God to heal our land. This nation has to get back to the conservative values it was found on!

    • Stopping, limiting, and controlling a land-owners use of his own property is not constitutional. A land owner may make better use of a natural watershed or marsh than to just let it be ‘wasted acreage.’

    • Why do you think we are not drilling in the Gulf or anywhere else in the USA, where we have enough oil in the ground to be self sufficient for the next 60 years? Soros and Obama are personally heavily invested in Brazilian oil and are making millions from it. Even worse, the taxpayers of the US are now funding the Brazilian oil wells/drilling and the jobs that should be growing here. Wake up people it’s time to stop this crooked “Democratic? world government which will ultimately, and soon, destroy us.

  5. It was unconstitutional, when we had a constitution, but now that we no longer have a congress or a constitution and there are only two, not three branches of the federal government, the EPA and other bureucrats can do as they please.

    The congress could sue in the fedreal court but, they actually don’t object to Obama’s law so they submit these sacrificial bills to soothe the passion of the angry voters. It is working for me.

  9. Anyone with a mind for God and country know that what is going on is against everything our founding fathers created with God’s help.
    Anyone with knowledge of our Constitution and bill of rights can bring charges against these people who are working to distroy this country, the answers are simple and if inforced the problems would quickly go away. All that said brings me to believe there is a power beyond ours in control.
