Skip to comments.Senate Democrats poised to start energy bill (includes carbon cap on utilities)
Posted on 06/26/2010 11:14:54 PM PDT by SmartInsight
Legislation could include a carbon cap on utility companies.
With the gulf oil spill creating political opportunity, Senate Democrats will begin crafting a sweeping energy bill this week that could include a first-ever, though more modest, cap on global-warming pollution.
Republicans dismiss such a cap-and-trade system as a new tax on households and business â "cap-and-tax," they call it.

Congress this year, The White house in 2012. We will stop this monstrosity.
These bastards are on a rampage. There’s no stopping them.
Collect a basketful of Democrat heads and load them onto a Southwest flight to nowhere.
This is going to be the big one right here. On top of increased insurance premiums and the higher cost of gas, it will completely bankrupt every last family and business in America but will make all of Obama's commie political cronies rich. These people are insane.
These bastards are on a rampage. Theres no stopping them.
I beleive any opposition to all this by the Republicans is just for show. When a Republican or anyone else in a position of power comes out and states that “0bama is a communist bent on the destruction of America, etc, etc, I will have some hope.
They’ve all been compromised and don’t want harm to come to their families.
If every politician and their families were killed in a natural disaster I would throw a huge party.
Agreed. The gop is useless.
We can not wait until then......this sh!t now.
These thugs of the Zer0 Regime will not let the truth stop their plans. They control our lives with tyranny as so many throughout history have done when the truth is irrelevant. They are guided by moral relativism where policy is not governed by the facts. If the facts are controlled by what they want us to believe anything is possible and our lives are controlled by lies. The founding principles of this great nation are at stake by this brood of thugs who believe that a American citizen is something that smells like crap when you walk over their freedom.
Clean house in 2010. Continue the 2nd American Revolution in 2012.
Serfs and masters, that is the Democrat plan, and there is no one to stop them at the moment. The idiots actually think they are going to save the world by driving the price of energy sky high.
0bamaCare will destroy the country, and the American way of life, that’s a fact.
Cap ‘n Trade will speed it up, that’s all.
The left is winning.
If I had a nickel for every time an American laughed at the idea that the left would soon take full control of this country, I would be one highly taxed individual.
They’re not insane, they are just evil.
These commie pressmeisters call all their wicked stuff by names like “sweeping” and “landmark.” It’s only “controversial” when our side does it.
Ha! They know damn well that man made global warming is an absolute fabrication and lie. This has nothing to do with “saving the planet.” It is everything to do with consolidating more power, more control and of course more money for the politicians, leftist groups and corporate cronies. Cap and trade is nothing more than fascist, tyrannous theft.
You know, I think you are right! I have lost all faith in any politician, left or right (right is my preference). They seem to become benefactors of the lobbyists and care little about the direction of the country. Just look at the Republicans now...even now, some of them think that NOT reducing spending is a good idea!
That said, I hope for a consortium of Republicans that can come together and stop this awful Democrat process of destroying the country a bit at a time... If it is not stopped now, I doubt that any electorate that come in November can do the job.
I am beginning to lose all faith in our Republic but am hopeful that others seeing the changes will prevail. I have little faith in the eventual outcome of this November election - yes, we may elect a majority of Republicans in either or both the House and Senate...
Just what good does that do if neither party believes in the Constitution!
If it does not work this time... a revolution is coming...
Not enough ompah to pass this.
They know that once a tax is passed by the federal government it is rarely repealed. The carbon tax, higher marginal income tax rates, a VAT, and higher inheritance taxes are the “answer” to the deficit in their minds. Plus these taxes facilitate their plans to equalize the masses by destroying what is left of the middle class.
