WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Subcommittee on Water and Power held an oversight hearing today on the FY 2011 Administration Budget Request for the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation). The attached remarks are by Representative Tom McClintock:
The attack of September 11th, 2001 was our generation’s Pearl Harbor. The Al Qaeda terrorists received succor, protection and encouragement from the Taliban government and accordingly acted as an agency of that government just as surely as the Japanese naval air forces that attacked Pearl Harbor acted as an agency of the government of Japan.
Washington, DC – Representative Tom McClintock (CA - 04) today made the following remarks at a press conference held to introduce a Spending Limitation Constitutional Amendment. Representative McClintock is co-author of the legislation.
I was extremely disappointed that on the same day we learned that the Northern Sierra snowpack is at 125% percent of normal, peeling away rhetoric that could only be best described as self-serving and deceptive, the administration has only actually committed to releasing 5% percent of water deliveries owed to the Central Valley, with the remaining 25% contingent on remaining precipitation.

Two weeks ago, Congress and the President added $1.9 trillion to the national debt limit. That translates to more than $6,000 of additional debt for every man, woman and child in the country – more than $24,000 for an average family of four.
At a time when Californians are paying the highest electricity prices in the Continental United States and when officials can’t guarantee enough electricity to keep the lights on, the decision to deliberately destroy 155 megawatts of the cleanest and cheapest electricity available is simply insane.

Last week, Republicans held a listening forum in Fresno to hear directly from the people of California’s Central Valley who have been devastated by the federal government’s willful decision to turn off their water to indulge the environmental left’s pet causes.
