AFP-Virginia Statement on Senator Webb’s Empty EPA Promise

Ben Marchi, State Director of Americans for Prosperity, today released
the following statement regarding Senator Jim Webb’s duplicity on the
issue of over-reaching EPA global warming regulations:

“Outside the capitol on Wednesday, Senator Jim Webb promised a rally
of coal miners from Virginia and beyond that Congress is “not going to
let the EPA regulate coal out of business”.

However, inside the halls of the Senate as recently as June 10, Webb
was singing a different song. He voted against S.J. Res 26, which
would have stopped the EPA’s global warming regulatory onslaught. The
resolution got 47 votes, 4 short of the 51 needed for passage. Webb
not only voted no, but he also gave cover to other coal state
Democrats to let the EPA power grab continue.

I find it outrageous that Senator Webb would promise hardworking
Virginians that he would vote to prevent a power grab by the EPA when
he voted just months ago, and in lock-step with the Obama/Pelosi/Reid
machine, to allow them near-absolute regulatory power.”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
