Quote of the Day

"We pretty strongly told them we do need your help to get this done. And when we walked away from the meeting the feeling was we got that."—An anonymous Republican aide, on the closed-door session between "top staff members for key House and Senate Republicans" and "energy industry interests" who were meeting "to work on strategy to handcuff the Obama administration's climate change agenda."
With the backing of GOP caucus leaders, aides for House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and Senate Environment and Public Works Committee ranking member Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) are seeking unwavering support from a host of industries for an all-out push to block federal and state climate rules.
Fair enough. I mean, who knows more about the environment than the energy industry, right? The Invisible Hand will fix everything! Yay!
