To The Daily Sun,
The best question asked this Monday morning on the "Morning Joe" program was by Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics to Bill Kristol founder and editor of the Conservative Weekly Standard. What will be the GOP message if they take over both the House and Senate after the elections? There was no response. But Kristol, after a short thoughtful period, did say energy and repeal of the ACA.
In my opinion that says it all because the Republicans have no idea of what they will do if they win. After eight years of trying to stop everything the president has tried to do the only thing they can say is "No." They have forgotten how to be positive and creative. Led by Boehner and Mitchie they only know how to be negative.
Whatever the president has wanted they were against even if they were for it first. They have voted against bills they once voted for depending what the president wanted. They talk about job creation, but the only one they keep referring to is the Keystone pipeline which is a non-starter.
Ignoring or eliminating science will not make our problems go away so we need groups like the EPA. If anyone saw a news clip of the marathon in Beijing, China, over the weekend with the runners wearing gas masks you have just looked into our future. The air quality was rated as hazardous. We need to slowly wean ourselves off of fossil fuels. We need to study and invest in alternative energy sources. There is room for more than one source. We have to solve our problems no matter where and what they are.
Ebola, ISIL, immigration are just a few to start and if the new Congress won't deal with them we're all in trouble.
