LAMBRO: Choking on ‘green’ legislation
Question of the Day
Typically, though, Democratic leaders in Congress are not willing to abide by the same environmental costs and mandates they want to impose on the rest of us.
Last month, the House of Representatives dropped its plan to make its offices “carbon neutral,” breaking its solemn promise to cut greenhouse emissions to zero under its Green the Capitol program.
Today, the Capitol Power Plant’s smokestacks, located a few blocks from the Capitol, still belch out filthy pollutants from the 35 percent of coal it burns to heat the House offices and chambers. It accounts for the largest single source of air pollutants in the District.
We now live under Nancy Pelosi’s arrogant autocratic rule that tells us: “Do as we say, not as we do.”
