  •  Enzi is my senator (6+ / 0-)

     I call so often they know me. It does no good whatever when 80% of the population thinks Enzi is doing a great job-even now nearly that many thinks Bush was doing a great job!
     All the corporate money is on Enzi's side. That is, big coal, oil, gas and some other mineral extraction-one being trona, a mineral used in toothpast, and bentonite clay used for kitty litter.  
      Coal is the main one. Coal is the biggest industry. Wyoming has enough high quality coal for all the rest of the nation.  That's what nearly all of the money in the state comes from.
      Actually, workers in the extraction industry here are paid fairly well. What the corporations are afraid of is health and safety regulations.
      Coal companies and Walmart are doing great here. Neither one like unions a bit.
