House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) said on Thursday that he has the votes to take down Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-Calif.) climate change bill.
Peterson’s boast comes as Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Waxman has backed off on his desire to have his bill go straight to the floor. Waxman told reporters Thursday afternoon that he expects the bill to go to Peterson’s committee, as well as to the Ways and Means and Foreign Affairs committees, for additional markups.
Why do they have problems waterboarding Terrorists but no problem waterboarding fellow americans ?
WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) – A Rhode Island lawmaker says he’ll donate $100 to charity for every second former President George W. Bush withstands waterboarding, an interrogation technique his administration used on some terror suspects.
Rep. Rod Driver, a Democrat, also included former Vice President Dick Cheney and ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in his offer. He sent letters to all three.
Driver said that if Bush is so confident that waterboarding, which simulates drowning, is not torture, he should try it for himself while being videotaped. His offer was first reported Thursday in The Westerly Sun.
Picture of Mr Driver. Sort of looks like Ed Koch.
