Elections do make a difference, especially when control of a legislative house switches parties. And even more powerfully when that body provides funding for eagerly pursued actions by lobbyist. As Cramer says on "Mad Money", America is "...of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations."
Is that what you want? If not, make your voice heard.
Voting largely along party lines, House Republicans loaded a stopgap
funding measure with amendments that would block EPA climate rules,
gut landscape conservation, stymie EPA rulemaking on coal ash, prevent
preservation of national monuments, stop the "Greening the Capitol"
program, quash a Chesapeake Bay cleanup, de-fund a National Park in
former Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district, hamstring EPA's effort to
control mercury air pollution, and fire President Obama's climate
negotiator and policy "czars." The House could pass the spending
measure today, sending it to the Senate on a take-it-or-leave it
basis, with GOP leaders threatening a government shutdown if the
Senate does not comply.
