Pressure Builds… Lindsey Graham May Pull Support for Cap & Tax Bill
US Senate RINO Lindsey Graham threatened Team Obama that he would pull his support for their cap-&-tax bill if the democrats proceeded with immigration legislation.
What this has to do with cap-&-tax is anyone’s guess.
Maybe Lindsey is feeling the heat from the nation’s conservatives who oppose the amnesty and gas tax proposed by the far left?
The Hill reported:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Saturday that he will be “unable to move forward” with the upcoming climate and energy bill he’s crafting if Democratic leaders push ahead with plans to move immigration legislation.
Graham’s declaration could halt or unravel the months-long effort to craft a compromise climate measure he has undertaken with Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.). The measure is slated to be unveiled Monday.
“I want to bring to your attention what appears to be a decision by the Obama Administration and Senate Democratic leadership to move immigration instead of energy,” Graham wrote in a letter Saturday.
“Unless their plan substantially changes this weekend, I will be unable to move forward on energy independence legislation at this time. I will not allow our hard work to be rolled out in a manner that has no chance of success,” he added.
Lindsey Graham’s DC phone number is 202-224-5972.
