    do you know the great grandson of john david and nephew of nelson?

    senator rockefeller is one of the most progressive voices in reid's roundhouse, he was probably msnbc's most frequent senate guest during the obamacare wars, proud proponent of the public option (ron wyden from oregon was another strong advocate, while anthony i-wanna-waiver weiner was the most persistent pugilist for the po in pelosi's place)

    kent conrad from dakota, budget chair and right hand man to the gatekeeper, max baucus, was probably the democrat most responsible for killing the po

    fyi

    anyway, rockefeller has real umbrage against epa, it's all about the appalachian state

    bobby byrd staunchly opposed cap and trade, joe manchin put a bullet thru it

    a number of you don't know what you're talking about, which is fine

    have fun

    John Rockefeller takes aim at EPA - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com

    Democrat seeks to force climate rule vote - Darren Goode - POLITICO.com

    John Rockefeller aims to block EPA rules - Lisa Lerer - POLITICO.com

    'Brown Dogs' complicate climate plan - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com

    others to watch are mccaskill, sherrod brown, conrad, tester, stabenow, klobuchar, casey, alaska's begich, baucus and ultra lib levin

    west virginian nick rahall, 18 term former chair of house resources, is the brown dog leader downstairs, but he's not really needed in boehner's bailiwick

    with all due respect, if you linked more you'd be forced to read, then you might know what's going on BEFORE you click and submit

    stay up

    Theres one reason for the opposition from WV politicians...Coal

    Re: Shutdown avoided, White House, Congress cheer deal

    what's going on here, folks, big picture, is ryan's austerity budget embraces in spirit the corpus of bowles-simpson, obama's vaunted debt commission, fiscal fallback for the presidential flop for 2 years

    EXCEPT...

    ryan completely excludes the tax/revenue arena

    too bad obama took all taxes off the table a couple days before new years eve

    oh, republicans made him do it (in lame duck)---we can all hear the excuses to come from the blame-bush crowd

    then the prez shouldn't have CAVED on the bush tax cuts for the rich, should he

    he shouldn't acted SQUAT for 2 years on this central relationship between each american citizen and his or her irs

    either way, we are where we are---austerity is the ultra chic, and tax hikes are for the foreseeable off the table

    america wanted and expected johnny unitas, we got ray guy
