Is this the end or beginning of stupidity? As the close vote in the House shows, this monstrosity, that no one voting on it has even read, could be headed for doom in the Senate--and I certainly hope so. If it dies in the Senate (like all stupid things that Pelosi sends over should) then it may not be the end of stupidity, but it's at least a decent blow to doltishness.
If, however, the Senate manages to pass this dumbass piece of legislation and BHO signs it (and he will), we will face another stupid tax over nothing. Liberally-inspired stupidity abounds and flourishes. Then, these morons will slowly say the climate is moderating (ahem...it already has) and that their legislation (and hidden taxes) did it. See how scams work? Nice, huh?
WASHINGTON – In a triumph for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed sweeping legislation Friday that calls for the nation's first limits on pollution linked to global warming and aims to usher in a new era of cleaner, yet more costly energy.
The vote was 219-212, capping months of negotiations and days of intense bargaining among Democrats. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure, arguing it would destroy jobs in the midst of a recession while burdening consumers with a new tax in the form of higher energy costs.
