The money seems to be coming in OK for Mr. Rogers' NRCC Patriot pals.
There have been a few scary threats about the impact of cap-and-trade legislation, but they're pretty much preaching to the choir. And as Mr. Rogers thunders that cooling the planet will "sink" Michigan's economy, he seems to forget that our state has lost over 600,000 jobs in the last eight years -- pretty much tracking with his tenure in Washington.
What, exactly, HAS Mr. Rogers been doing in D.C.?
The only health care coverage he's supported has been his own.
And the Knowlegis Power Rankings show that no one is paying much attention to his ideas and opinions:
Mike Rogers' Power Score is 16.30
* average score for the Michigan delegation? 25.9
* ranking Republican John Boehner? 56.88
His rank in the House is 214th out of 435.
Don't hold your breath for big things from Mr. Rogers in 2009.
