Time to Finish the Job
By Larry Schweiger
In response to National Journal’s blog question today “Does Sen. Lindsey Graham’s decision to quit the climate and energy negotiations with Sens. John Kerry and Joe Lieberman spell the end of such legislation this year?” I posted the following response. Our leaders must seize this moment to act now.
With the Senate so close to the goal line on a new energy path for America, we can’t call a time out now. Every day our Senators fail to pass clean energy & climate legislation, we put our economy, our national security & our environment at greater risk. The Senate needs to stay focused and finish the job.
