Energy Bill Caught in the Crossfire

"Forget the high-stakes showdown over a spending bill to keep the federal government from shutting down," USA Today reports.

"When it comes to political dysfunction of this Congress, Exhibit A is unfolding in the Senate over a modest, bipartisan energy-efficiency bill. Sponsored by Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) the legislation has become entangled in a nasty debate over completely unrelated issues -- including 'Obamacare' and prostitution allegations. The spat has even sparked an ethics complaint raising allegations of bribery and intimidation."
