Why couldn't the Obama administration accomplish this. They said they cared about the environment. Or did they just March to the drum beat of the nimby useful idiots and other noisy special interest groups?
One of life's biggest misconceptions is that career politicians hold deep-seated personal beliefs. It's all a show; behind the facade they're triangulating to position themselves to retain power. The worst offenders, and the ones most masterful at it, are the ones with no personal success outside the political arena who are completely dependent in keeping and advancing their positions. Obama is an amateur at the game compared to the Clintons, but like Trump he caught them off guard as they underestimated the electorate's ability to see through them.
Meanwhile we should all be thankful for the massive carbon emissions avoided by not flying Nancy Pelosi and her entourage halfway around the world for no legitimate purpose. Just one of those little things that's helping to save the planet.
I think that exposed a fair amount of fraud, waste and abuse. What was it? 17 government officials, having over 100 family members tag along?
I understand official business but that reeks of screwing off on the tax payers dime.
It's like they have forgotten who works for who.
Anyone who thinks that any politicians goals are in line with your best interests is an idiot.
The only possible exception to that is when you get someone who doesn't care about politics that gets in there. For a brief time they might care about the voter and doing the right thing until they realize what they are up against and figure out they are better off just shutting up, coloring, taking the money and going through the motions.
You want to see what going to Washington and trying to doing the right thing gets you, look up Daniel best and Dr David kelly.
