The Obama administration has suffered a defeat in its efforts to close the nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.http://www.kansascity.com/2010/07/04/2063070/judges-block-obama-effort-to-close.html
Three administrative judges within the Nuclear Regulatory Commission ruled last week that President Barack Obama and Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu don't have the authority to close the controversial site unilaterally. That can only be accomplished, the judges said, by an act of Congress.
Unilaterally closing the nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada without an act of Congress is illegal and unconstitutional, but would help Nevada Senator Reid's reelection effort.
Isn't this the kind of action that used to be taken by Bush and Cheney and Rove and opposed by Democrats?
