Barrasso Slams Climate Change ‘Pay to Play’ Money

[jwp-video n=”1″]

Sen. John Barrasso hammered the White House on Tuesday for committing $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris later this month, characterizing the money as “pay to play” funds for combating climate change. “The president once again is going to try to circumvent Congress as he has done with a number of environmental regulations going around Congress,” Barrasso said. “… But $3 billion is money that the people of the United States don’t support, it’s money that our economy cannot afford … Congress will have a say.”
