Quote of the Week [10/4/2010]


  "My hold on Mr. Lew's nomination will remain for the same reason it was placed originally: The administration has not acted to lift its ill-conceived moratoria on offshore drilling that are having such a devastating impact on working people and small businesses throughout the Gulf Coast. Everyone, especially those who live along the coast, wants offshore energy production safety standards strengthened. But we have been able to demonstrate that the oil and gas industry can improve safety progressively over time, without a complete work stoppage." — Sen. Mary Landrieu, explaining her rationale for continuing her hold on the nomination of Jack Lew, whom the Obama administration has nominated to be director of the Office of Management and Budget.
