Just because I’m Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, doesn’t mean I always like to be in charge.
You may have read about me and Tim Phillips of Americans For Prosperity but don’t let that turn you off. I’m too hot to be tied down to one special interest guy.
But if you don’t give me the kind of time and attention I need, I’m not afraid to walk. I used to spend a lot of time listening to scientists, and I bought what they had to say about global warming hook, line and sinking islands. But then I had to ask myself, what has Science done for me lately?
Now that I’m a global warming skeptic, I get all the attention I want from Koch Industries, Entergy and other companies that have shown how much I mean to them in a half-a-million ways. Nothing says “you’re special” like cold, hard cash.
Like my nuclear policy, I’ll take a risk on you if you gamble on me.
Interests: Michigan Wolverines, home appliances, and knee-capping the EPA.
