Senators huddle over competing climate change plans (Graham, Collins perfidy alert) (BARF)
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-01-26 | Ben Geman

Architects of competing Senate climate change plans met Tuesday as behind-the-scenes talks continue over legislation that advocates of greenhouse gas limits are struggling to keep alive in 2010.

Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are trying to craft a compromise climate and energy bill, and they met in the afternoon with Sens. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).

Cantwell and Collins introduced a so-called cap-and-dividend approach in December. Kerry, Graham and Lieberman are hoping to blend emissions caps with energy provisions including expanded offshore drilling and new subsidies for nuclear power.

“They [Cantwell and Collins] have an approach. I respect it because it has the same goal that we have, which is to do something about global warming, and it does put a price on carbon,” Lieberman said before the meeting. “This is our attempt to reach out with them and see if we can find common ground.”

They could just pass legislation requiring that the earth be moved farther away from the sun.

That would be about as effective as what they would like to do, with far less damage to the economy and people's lives.

So now they want to hit us with another version of “Let them eat cake.”

What planet are these people from? They certainly don’t seem to have a clue about what is important to average folks.

I promise you, Lindsay effing Graham, that I will do everything I can to bury your sorry, traitorous, rino ass when you run for re-election. I will borrow a phrase from the yankees because it fits you, you sonofabitch. “Copperhead”.

“What planet are these people from?”

From planet SOROS!
He who distributes the Gold makes the rules.
The corruption in Washington DC is so open and brazen that it absolutely boggles the mind.

Quite true, but Soros and friends wouldn't get the $Trillions that they are scheming for.

It baffles me that people like Graham have survived this long - stupid people should die early.
They need to let this evil carbon train run off the damn tracks and over the cliff!

“Architects of competing Senate climate change plans met Tuesday as behind-the-scenes talks continue over legislation....”

Translation: The following Senators are trying to raise campaign cash for the fall....and are running out of other tidbits to trade with corporate America....

Seems the peasants and peons aren’t quite as screwable as they ought to be....

They are a hairs breath away from being delusional enough to believe they could legislate that, and be done with the problem - let's encourage them!
