President Barack Obama’s climate change agenda was thrown into turmoil Sunday after a key Republican abruptly pulled his support for a compromise energy and climate bill in a blow to Democrats.
Senator Lindsey Graham, an influential Republican, abandoned what Democrats said was a painstakingly negotiated climate bill in outrage over a decision by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to move an immigration bill in the Senate ahead of it.
White House officials appeared to be taken aback by the move, unsure how to respond to the unraveling of a major component of the president’s strategy both for meeting his international pledges on climate change and shifting the US economy from its heavy reliance on foreign oil.
“We need and we welcome that cooperation from Senator Graham. They are both important. There is no either/or between energy and immigration reform,” said Lawrence Summers, the head of the White House National Economic Council.
