Besides being an idiot, he seems to be starting his campaigning for the next election. The numbers in this last election may have scared him a bit. Anybody think Hiliary will pick Durbin as her running mate?? What a ticket that would be - rates right up there with Abbot and Costello.

Can't do a sunset provision? It's a referendum...unless Illinois has specific language requirements for sales tax (which I can't seem to find) you can put anything you want on a referendum. After the referendum passes they create an ordinance...and the idea that somebody would sue that you can't put a sunset provision in an ordinance sounds pretty ludicrous to me. A self-restricting…

There's also 7.6 million Illinois residents that aren't being represented by little Dickie Durbin. Yes the majority rules in our republic but that doesn't mean the minority shouldn't be represented and their rights protected. Durbin is a typical liberal democrat who believes that the socialist agenda comes above all things. The Herald Rag endorsed Durbin because he brings home…

A word of advice. Always get plenty of sleep before coming into contact with Kevin Taute. He may look at your eyes and be so bold, not only as to accuse you of having consumed marijuana, but then additionally suggest you're growing it in a planter pot to distribute as well. What a tool! If only we could all aspire to such douchebaggery.

House Republicans say they may try to block the EPA's proposed greenhouse-gas rule

From by DTN AgDay:

House Republicans say they may try to block the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed greenhouse-gas (GHG) rule for power plants by denying the funding to implement it, according to Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, a senior member of a House Appropriations Committee. Funding for EPA is included in the Interior-Environment appropriations bill which is being drafted by an Appropriations subcommittee.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., has pointed out that House Democrats will vote overwhelmingly to oppose GOP attempts to drop funding for the GHG rules. "The overwhelming majority of our party is going to support [funding the effort] and the Senate's not going to pass a repeal" of the regulation, he said. "Nor will the president sign it."

It is unlikely that Congress would be able to roll-back EPA's carbon emissions proposal. But it is highly likely that Republicans will construct a procedure that will require Democrats to go on the record as either opposing or supporting the new GHG rules. Such votes then could be used as ammunition in next November's mid-term elections.
