House GOP Under Pressure From Allies to Support Planks of Democratic Climate Plan
The Washington Examiner quotes CEI’s Myron Ebell, the director of the CEI’s Center for Energy and the Environment, regarding the recent Democrat climate plan:
Other conservative groups have been more critical of the Democrats’ plan and are discouraging Republicans from taking it seriously.
“It’s a ridiculously wasteful plan, and what’s even more ridiculous is that there are no plans to vote on it,” said Myron Ebell, director of the center for energy and environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
Hartman said Republicans have a “golden opportunity” to release a plan that “empowers the private sector to cut emissions voluntarily, creatively, and cost-effectively,” instead of relying on federal mandates and spending.
