Kerry Blasts Roadblock Republicans on Energy Bill Obstruction
Sen. John Kerry made the following statement today,
after Republicans blocked a cloture vote on the energy bill. Kerry was
the only member of Congress to attend the International Climate
Conference in Bali this week.
"While the world's leaders gathered in Bali to combat climate change,
the Senate's Roadblock Republicans didn't have enough backbone to stand
up to big oil and pass an energy bill that will help fight climate
change rather than make it worse," said Kerry. "Republicans today made
it clear they'd rather protect excessive tax giveaways for big oil than
protect America from climate change or break our dependence on foreign
oil. This vote today was a disgrace."
