Landrieu Holds Up Nominee Over Oil Drill Ban
Source: Associated Press

Louisiana Senator Vows to Block OMB Nominee Jacob Lew Unless Deepwater Drilling Moratorium Lifted

Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday she will block a Senate vote to confirm the nominee to a key White House economic office to protest the six-month moratorium on deepwater oil and gas drilling in the Gulf.

Landrieu, a Democrat, said she will object to a vote on Jacob Lew to head the Office of Management and Budget until the administration lifts or significantly modifies the moratorium imposed last May after the BP oil spill.

"I cannot support further action on Mr. Lew's nomination to be a key economic advisor to the president until I am convinced that the president and his administration understand the detrimental impacts that the actual and de facto moratoria continue to have on the Gulf Coast," she said in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

6. The one and only way in which Democratics should be more like repubs -
If a repub senator pulled that crap against a repug president they would be out on their ass as far as holding any important committee seats. Our team leaders in congress need to grow some balls. Once Lie-berman showed that blackmail could work a handful of others followed suit, and have been fairly successful at it so far.
