"I am not the one arguing against public care of government employees. You are, No ... maybe this is the crux. I'm saying everyone pays for themselves. You act like government employees deserve some special early retirement, open ended pension entitlement, while farmers and construction workers take more risk to feed and build, but must serve and bow to the "public servant/saint". …

I'm not sure if you were a cop in NYC or what ... the "war zones" are different environments, and the cop side is not all clean in the big cities either, you can't kid me on that. I was in New Orleans before some of the bad side was cleaned up .. was friends with some too, most were OK. They supposedly cleaned up much ... hopefully. But the small town municipalities where locals take…

Notice how they do not even mention a passenger until they refer to the gunshot wound? How about-it's not a good shoot if they have no idea who they are shooting at. Good Lord, there could have been a child in the car for all the police know. The passenger had no idea he was involved in anything until his friend jumped back in the car and took off. The passenger is in my family. He was shot…

McCaskill says she intends to "Slow down the EPA" on coal

2 years, 8 months ago by Jim Dewey, WTAD News

The U S EPA is conducting a hearing in Chicago to hear comments on its latest proposed rule regulating green-house gasses

The U S EPA is conducting a hearing in Chicago to hear comments on its latest proposed rule regulating green-house gasses. Critics of the rule say it would effectively ban construction of coal fired generators all across the United States.

Missouri U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill says that may be an overstatement for effect - but she says she and other members of congress are working to corral the EPA.

"I know that there is a good healthy number of us moderates that are going to hold the line on the EPA, in terms of how reasonable they are as it related to the coal related regulations," McCaskill said.  "And I know we've got a strong bipartisan cooperation in that regard and we will continue to do that."

McCaskill was a cosponsor of legislation that is "intended to slow down the EPA as it relates to some of these issues." She says she opposed Cap and Trade because it would have been too harmful to many small businesses and families on fixed incomes in Missouri which is largely coal dependent. Senator McCaskill was speaking to reporters during her regular conference call from Washington.
