Our nation’s capital — where bad ideas go to get out on permanent life support and you get the bill. Read the latest on Cap & Screw:
“We will present senators with a number of options when they get back from recess,” said one Senate aide knowledgeable of the compromise legislation that is being developed. The goal is to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists say threaten Earth.
Of course, this is the same legislation which languished in the Senate before the AGW Debacle of the last three months. And before the Democrats lost their veto-proof majority. And before the health care reform bill scared enough Americans into paying attention to the shenanigans on Capitol Hill.
So don’t be too nervous that this thing will pass. But do be scared out of you mind by the stubbornly statist stupidity of the Congressional leadership.
