Party of Pollution Slap Down

The NC League of Conservation Voters and the national League of Conservation Voters issued its 2011 National Environmental Scorecard this week, ranking the North Carolina Congressional delegation on environmental issues. There were no surprises with Senator Kay Hagan receiving a perfect score and Representative Virginia Foxx receiving the lowest score.

The group said 2011 revealed the most anti-environmental session in history of the US House but the Senate and the Obama administration stood up against the assault on environmental laws and public health safeguards, stopping many dangerous bills.  Republicans ranked lowest with Burr, McHenry, Myrick and Ellmers scoring in the single digits.

    Burr needs to go to selling lawnmowers, he’s also one of three senators to vote against congressional insider trading, mainly due to his investment in natural gas companies. Can anyone say fracking in NC? Sure, I knew you could. I’ve watched Foxx on the floor of the house and she is a disaster.
