GOP Boycotts EPA Pick

The Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee was forced to put on hold a vote to send the nomination of Gina McCarthy, Obama's pick to lead the EPA, to the full Senate for consideration. Republicans, unsatisfied with responses she's given so far, boycotted the panel. "This shows how outside the mainstream they are. Shows how obstructionist they are," said Sen. Barbara Boxer, who chairs the panel.
