Roadblocks to improving the energy grid: Regulations and empty chairs   Leave a comment

Although Lisa Murkowski is Alaska’s senior senator and I’m an Alaskan, I am not surprised in the least that she is suddenly not a fiscal conservative when it’s time to cut the budget. That’s who Lisa was before fiscal conservativism was needed to win a Republican seat. Her stand against reducing the budget is the primary reason she lost the GOP nomination in 2010. That she retook the seat with Democratic help is an indictment of the intelligence and knowledge of Alaskan voters.

Well, she’s just a few months into her current term, so there’s not a thing we can do about it, but let’s remember this and not ask her back in 2022 … if the country, given the current debt load on the government, lasts that long.

I’m just saying … Lisa, the nation is $21 trillion in debt, digging the hole deeper by $1 trillion every year. Don’t you think you could find it within your conscience to reduce that burden by a few billion for programs that are duplicative or completely outside the scope of Constitutional authority? You are a Republican, right? Not a Democrat? Lela

 

Trump’s steep $54 billion budget cuts could create a conundrum for lawmakers who want to support infrastructure development, but can’t because of the cuts.
