"Climate change is very real," she confessed as she embraced cap and trade's massive tax increase on Michigan industry - at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. "Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."The latest poll result from Rasmusen is a little disconcerting:
Senator Debbie Stabenow, Democrat - Michigan
Incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow is still outrunning her two leading Republican challengers in Michigan's U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Michigan Voters shows Stabenow with 47% support, while businessman Clark Durant picks up 39% of the vote. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the contest, and 10% are undecided.
I can't imagine how anyone who pays the slightest amount of attention to what is going on in Washington could vote for Debbie Stabenow. Seriously.
Also, she has gained nation notoriety when Citizens Against Government Waste named Stabenow "Porker of the Month" in March of this year.
In celebration of St. Patrick's Day earlier this month, and in recognition of the potfuls of taxpayer gold that have been squandered on subsidizing ill-advised green energy programs, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) has named Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) Porker of the Month for submitting an amendment that would have extended federal subsidies for alternative fueling stations, biofuels, refined coal, energy-efficient appliances, wind power, and similar initiatives.
Sen. Stabenow's ultimately unsuccessful amendment exemplifies the public policy fallacy gripping the Obama administration and many lawmakers, which holds that the key to unlocking a green energy surge is simply more taxpayer money.
"The past six months have been marred by examples of the futility of picking winners in energy markets...Failures at Solyndra, Ener1, Beacon, Tesla, Amonix, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, SunPower, and others make it obvious that the government has about as much chance of stumbling across a four-leaf clover as it does of being successful as a venture capitalist," declared CAGW President Tom Schatz.
There still is a lot of time between now and November but it has to be said....
Really Michigan? The citizens of Michigan would actually vote to return Stabenow to Washington where she can continue feeding at the taxpayer trough?
