Examples of Wheeler in a Sentence
I feel like I've been hit by an 18-wheeler, but other than that I'm great, my knees are the same as they were before the race, so that's good.
We see Mr. Wheeler as fitting a very typical pattern of behavior, he started off in the Senate, then went to a lobbying firm. Now he will be at a very high-ranking position at the EPA, where he will be in a position to make lots of decisions that could benefit his former clients. That's a disturbing pattern that I think is very common to natural resources management in general in the President Donald Trump administration.

Granted everyone would like to see signs one way or the other, but I think that this is mostly the chairman putting up a Washington poker face, Chairman Wheeler has learned that on net neutrality he has to tow a very careful line and all of his statements are very carefully neutral.
