Occasional Planet: Missouri Republican Congresswoman Ann Wagner push polls her constituents.

Truth Out: Hawaiian Electric Co. (HECO) is preventing residents from supplying solar power back to the energy grid because the program is too successful.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“We were fighting Hillarycare at that time. And I don't think anyone centered on it, I certainly didn't. That was 17 years ago.” (Utah GOP Senator Orrin Hatch, on why he co-sponsored an individual mandate bill in 1993 and now calls it unconstitutional, March 25, 2010.)
