Just when people and pundits had been saying that the Climate and Energy bill traveling through the Senate wouldn’t get anywhere near the attention that the Dems’ pet Health Bill received, the Gulf Oil Gusher, our nation’s worst environmental disaster to date, hit.

Meeting this past Thursday in Washington D.C., California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke with Henry A. Waxman, co-author of the Waxman-Markey Bill who also chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee (D-California) and also U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
