Yes, today the Senate finally confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency; a rogue agency completely out of sync with any semblance of normal environmental protection. Between bites of their sustainable algae cakes, drum circle activists throw themselves into apoplectic fits….
The vote was 52-46. Senators Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted for Pruitt. Republican Susan Collins of Maine voted against him.
The Senate now takes a week off allowing professional activists to regroup before returning on February 27th to vote on: • Commerce nominee Wilbur Ross, • Interior nominee Ryan Zinke, • Housing and Urban Development nominee Dr. Ben Carson, and • Energy nominee Rick Perry.
President Trump will be going into March without a full cabinet.
