So far, the Republican led Senate is a huge disappointment for conservatives. Obama and Senate Democrats have embarrassed Republicans by manhandling the new majority on full funding of the Department of Homeland Security and allowing Obama’s illegal executive action on immigration to move forward.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) grand plan to pass legislation forcing Obama to allow construction of the Keystone XL pipeline also failed miserably when the Senate did not vote to override the president’s veto.
Judging by this short but rapid rate of failure, it’s clear Republican control of Congress is not going to make any policy advances to challenge the progressive agenda. With momentum on the Democrats’ side, it’s fair to ask: how much worse can it really get?
Tragically, it looks like it can get a lot worse.
A couple of Senate Republicans are planning on using their new power to push part of Obama’s climate change clean energy agenda. According to a story by Lauren Gardner in CQ Roll Call, Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) are devising strategies to advance climate friendly clean energy legislation.
