West Virginia Wins in Senate

It has been a while since I thought about the strength of Rural America in the U. S. Senate.

Today the Outlook section of The Washington Post provides an excellent insight into how small states can influence the outcome of legislation in the United States Senate.  It points out the daunting odds climate change legislation passed by the House faces in the Senate. 

Just think about the damage the recently passed House Cap and Trade legislation would do to West Virginia if signed into law.

Let’s be glad the Founders provided this “check and balance” to the legislative process.
