During his opening remarks Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commented on the Clean Power Plan and the president’s current trip to Paris. “He’s currently trying to sell that power plan to world leaders in Paris as proof of the American government’s commitment to his energy priorities,” McConnell said. “But with all due respect to the president as our commander in chief, the countries currently engaged in this round of climate talks will want to know if there’s more than an executive branch in our system of government.”
