Risch porks it up right out of the hog pen for gov't land grab
Twelve US Senate RePORKblicans, including newly suckled Jim Risch voted for Harry Reid's government land grab bill that puts us further away from a decent energy policy. (Wonder how he and Crapo-rk would have voted when gas was $4.00+ a gallon?)
Excellent link to Michelle Malkin's write up and list of other RePORKblicans who voted with Harry Reid: "Jim DeMint didn't mince any words when calling out the capitulationist Republican 12 who aided Reid and the Dems. Dingy Harry has blocked Republicans from proposing any amendments to the package. The Bend-over GOP Dozen deserve a smack upside the head."
More info: "The bill ... sets aside 200 million acres for public wilderness in nine states. It adds more than 1,000 miles to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System and 2,800 miles of new trails to the federal system."
