Quote:
Now that House Republicans have concluded that Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) can keep his post as top GOPer on the Energy and Commerce Committee, Democrats are associating that decision with Republican members in contested districts, highlighting their complicity with party leadership and Barton himself
Quote:
"House Republicans like Representative Dave Reichert are keeping British Petroleum apologist Joe Barton as their top Republican on energy policy and continue to back his unbelievable obstruction to holding British Petroleum accountable for this disaster," reads a statement from DCCC spokesman Ryan Rudominer.

What's that supposed to mean?

When the Republicans gain control of congress the energy committees will be ruled by people like this.
I think that is awful. I don't know why teapartiers aren't up in arms over this sort of stuff.
