The Helpless Majority

They wouldn't want to offend anyone important- to their campaigns, anyhow.

Despite months of public outrage over the massive BP oil spill, frustrated Democratic Senate leaders abandoned their effort Tuesday to pass spill-related legislation before leaving for their summer recess later this week.

"That kind of bill, folks, ought to pass 100 to nothing, but it's not," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., a leader on energy legislation.

He and other Democrats had sought to raise liability limits on oil companies drilling in U.S. waters and provide incentives for consumers to make their homes and vehicles more energy efficient...

The main impediment to the Democrats accomplishing anything is as usual the Democrats.
