Dick Morris: Obama Could use Fast-Track to Require Climate Change Regulation
In a May 4 commentary (GOP: Lost Its Soul or Just Its Mind?), Dick Morris warns that President Obama could use Fast Track power (to negotiate trade treaties without amendment) to require climate change regulation:
Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is about to bring Fast-Track up before the Senate for a vote even though at least four Republican Senators (Sessions, Graham, Burr and Capito) and at least three potential Republican candidates for president (Huckabee, Jindal and Trump) oppose him.
Ironically, McConnell may be about to give Obama the power to destroy Kentucky's coal industry! Has he lost his mind?
Comment by Ron V, 5/8/2015:
This is very disturbing news. When will it ever stop. Climate change is most of Obama's agenda. This year the UP of Michigan had record cold temperatures. The frost line on Mackinac Island was 85 inches below grade and 30 degree weather lasted on into April. As for me personally, only God controls the thermostat. If it were not for the low natural gas prices, my energy bills would have soared through the roof!
Our country is in dire need of exceptional leaders, as you have indeed pointed this out! This also needs to be on national news..
Thanks for your very informative article.
