Did A ‘Green’ Millionaire Persuade Sen. Ayotte To Support EPA’s Global Warming Rule?

By Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller

EPA published a finalized version of its global warming rule in the Federal Register Friday and it wasn’t long before New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte bucked her own party and came out in support of the rule.

“It’s so important that we protect New Hampshire’s beautiful environment for our economy and for our future,” Ayotte said in a statement Sunday

“After carefully reviewing this plan and talking with members of our business community, environmental groups, and other stakeholders, I have decided to support the Clean Power Plan to address climate change through clean energy solutions that will protect our environment,” she said.

Ayotte is facing reelection in 2016 and could be fending off attacks from Democrats over her stance on global warming. On the other hand, Ayotte has received sizable donations from a rich donor concerned about global warming and green energy.

    That’s a good example of how our politicians must have these contributions from people with agendas. We just don’t know what to believe. At least, in this instance, we know that she is not a scientist so she can only repeat the information she has been given. She CAN do the reading and research things for herself, but, really, there is the influence of big money that steals her credibility. Politics is a tough business. Glad I am not one of them.

    She’s absolutely a RINO. She ran as a Tea Party candidate. She needs to be retired!
