Waxman Wins, God Help Us All

by William Yeatman on November 20, 2008

The press is reporting that California Representative Henry Waxman, a very liberal Congressman representing Beverly Hills, has defeated Michigan Representative John Dingell in a secret vote and will become the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

To get an idea of what to expect from Waxman, consider the following quip from CEI’s Chris Horner: “Funny how Dems elected a guy to chair Energy and Commerce who opposes both.”

If only it were funny. As we noted in an earlier post, expect Waxman to push hard for energy rationing policies to placate his ultra rich, Hollywood constituents.
