""The Senate chose to move America forward, towards that clean energy economy -- not backward to the same failed policies that have left our nation increasingly dependent on foreign oil,"
The score was 53-47
The bill was...Sen. Lisa Murkowski's battle to limit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's authority to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
What a relief that 53 Senators feel that we need to move beyond petroleum, and how sad that 47 think lining their pockets and the Gulf of Mexico with oil is still a good idea.
I was real happy about that vote, then from out of nowhere came a sign. I tried to look away but I had to look again to make sure I saw the sign...But it was out.
I was still real happy about the vote so I started singing a song. So everyone sing this song, and sing it a lot, sing it to your friends. It goes like this.
