Cap and Horse Trade
UPDATED below and often.
"We're making deals on the floor."
BREAKING: House leadership is refusing to provide a copy of the text of the bill.
LEADERSHIP: Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) is "keeping a tally of callers and his office says he'll vote based on the number of callers for or against cap and trade."
REPORTEDLY: There is exactly one extant copy of the bill. It his hidden in the Congressional cloakroom. I believe it is on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of the Leopard."
TYPO: The "new" printed version of the bill is still missing 300 new pages. Assuming anyone can find it.
GOHMERT: New GOP star?
WHAT A JOKE: Cap and Trade as permanent welfare?
GOING: Out to dinner. Back shortly.
