Defending the 'Gang of 10'

August 13, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

The “Gang of 10” seems to be running a new PR campaign to defend their energy bill.

As I mentioned last week, their bill, the New Energy Reform Act of 2008, is taking a beating form conservatives claiming that it’s not a bipartisan compromise, but a capitulation to Democrats.

Senator <a href=“>Bob Corker (TN), one of the Gang’s Republican members, called up blogger ”">Glenn Reynolds this afternoon to personally defend the bill. And Senators Kent Conrad (D-ND) and <a href=“>Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) ”">shot back at House-Republican idealism, explaining that their bill is a real attempt at creating energy legislation that may actually move in Congress.
