Bingaman Is the Only Politician Speaking Truth About Gas

Gasoline prices have everything to do with the international price of crude oil, and pretty much nothing to do with with our domestic policy. (We have only 2 percent of the world's total reserves.) That doesn't stop plenty of politicians and other know-nothings from crowing on about how Democrats and U.S. environmentalists are to blame for the current high (relatively) gasoline prices. Except Jeff Bingaman, the Democratic Senator from New Mexico, who delivered some honest-to-goodness truth about oil supply and demand in a speech last week. But what can Congress do to help ease the burden of ...

Interview: U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman

Bingaman said last year’sDeepwater Horizonoil spill has resulted in several lingering effects for the U.S. offshore drilling industry. The impact has been that the U.S. is still trying to ensure that necessary safety requirements and precautions are in place to ensure deep water drilling is safe. While several new permits have been issued, many applications are still pending and both the industry and government has had to reassess the risks involved. Several senators are frustrated that the pace of new offshore leases has not moved more quickly, but the Obama Administration would be ...

Jeff Bingaman to retire

New Mexico Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman announced his retirement today, a move that further complicates his party's efforts to hold their Senate majority in 2012. "The end of this Congress is the right time for me to step aside and allow someone else to serve," Bingaman said at an Albuquerque news conference. "It is not easy to get elected to the Senate, and it is not easy to decide to leave the Senate." Bingaman had been mulling whether to run for a sixth term for months and, if he had, would have almost certainly been re-elected. His retirement, however, creates an open seat contest that ...

Jeff Bingaman says goodbye to the Senate
Sen. Jeff Bingaman is wrapping up his long and distinguished career in the U.S. Senate. While there are still some votes in the lame-duck session to be cast — the fiscal cliff being chief among them — Bingaman gave his final floor speech on Thursday. You can watch the speech below. You can also read the text of the speech below, if you prefer. In it, Bingaman reflected on his three decades in Congress and gave insight on his political philosophy. “As I look back over the last 30 years, many of the arguments that have consumed our time here in the Senate, whether on questions of spending or taxes or regulation or fiscal policy, have divided between those who saw government as the problem and those who believed that it could and should be a constructive force for helping the American people deal with problems,” Bingaman said. “I consider myself, furthermore, in the ...
Congress passes fiscal deal
The U.S. House and U.S. Senate voted for legislation related to the fiscal cliff. President Barack Obama indicated that he would sign the deal. The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein had a good breakdown of what is in the deal. Included is that tax rates will go back to Clinton-era levels for individuals making $400,00 or more and for couples making $450,000 or more. The sequester will be delayed for two months — setting up another battle for the new Congress. Most of New Mexico’s delegation voted for the deal. Only Rep. Steve Pearce, also the lone Republican in the delegation, voted against the legislation. Both U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Jeff Bingaman made the vote in an early-morning session past midnight on New Year’s Day. Udall voted for the bill that he opposed because it was a “short-term” deal. “We managed to make progress on middle-class tax cuts, wind energy tax incentives and unemployment insurance, but ...
Pearce 46th-wealthiest member of Congress
Steve Pearce once again made the list of 50 wealthiest members of Congress. This year, according to The Hill, Pearce ranks 46th. None of the other members of the New Mexico delegation cracked the top-50 and made the list. Jeff Bingaman was in the lower-reaches of the list during his time in the Senate, but he decided not to run for another term in 2012 and was replaced by Martin Heinrich. The Hill, using financial disclosure forms that are at best approximations of the net worth of politicians, had Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Cali., as the most wealthy member of Congress — worth at least $355 million. Pearce, by comparison, is worth at least $8 million. Because of the way financial disclosure forms are imperfect and only require members of Congress to list their assets in a range, it is impossible to get an exact number. Pearce has been around the lower-levels of the list ...
Obama names Rio Grande del Norte a national monument (updated)
With the stroke of a pen, President Barack Obama named an area in northern New Mexico a national monument. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich and his predecessor former U.S. Jeff Bingaman were on hand at the ceremony for the designation. It was one of five national national monument designations that Obama named on Monday. “These sites honor the pioneering heroes, spectacular landscapes and rich history that have shaped our extraordinary country,” said President Obama in a statement sent by the White House. “By designating these national monuments today, we will ensure they will continue to inspire and be enjoyed by generations of Americans to come.” The designation was backed by Sens. Tom Udall and Heinrich as well as Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, who represents the area that the new national monument is in. “For more than a century, the Antiquities Act has given American presidents the authority to protect our nation’s most treasured landscapes, and the ...
