This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) calls in at 6:30am to talk about the economy, Gitmo, new emissions standards, credit card fairness, and other news of the day.

Joined by an uncommon alliance of auto executives, union leaders, and environmental activists, President Obama yesterday announced a national program to cut new vehicle carbon emissions and raise mileage by 30 percent, while also reducing oil needs and changing the kinds of cars Americans buy.

President Obama’s promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison suffered a blow yesterday when his allies in the Senate said they would refuse to finance the move until the administration delivers a satisfactory plan for what to do with the detainees there.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly yesterday to rein in credit card rate increases and excessive fees, hoping to give voters some breathing room amid a recession. The House was on track to pass the measure as early as today, paving the way for President Obama to see the bill on his desk by week’s end.

RNC Chairman Michael Steele declared yesterday that Republicans will no longer talk about their mistakes; instead they will focus on the future and serve as the loyal opposition party to President Obama and the congressional Dem majority. Steele offered no concrete plans or solutions.
