Here come the Democrats with cap and trade, right on cue, hell bent on destroying the U.S. economy, just not until they’re finished destroying the U.S. health care system first. Nevermind that the U.S. can reduce its emissions to zero and it won’t make a bit of difference toward affecting the global climate, so long as China and India don’t play along with the cap and trade scheme, something that both countries have rejected, in no uncertain terms. The only thing unilaterally imposing a cap and trade scheme on the U.S. will accomplish is to raise energy prices for consumers and devastate our economy.
Are Democrats deaf? Don’t they hear the American people emphatically saying no to their budget busting, tax and spend health care and climate change agendas?
Sens. Barbara Boxer and John Kerry said Monday the climate bill they are writing would not be finished until later in September.
The bill was expected to be ready when lawmakers returned next week.
“Because of Senator Kennedy’s recent passing, Senator Kerry’s August hip surgery, and the intensive work on healthcare legislation particularly on the Finance Committee where Sen. Kerry serves, Majority Leader Reid has agreed to provide some additional time to work on the final details of our bill, and to reach out to colleagues and important stakeholders,” Sens. Boxer (D-Calif.) and Kerry (D-Mass.) said in a joint statement.

No, c’mon, bring it on! The timing is perfect for spewing forth another massive government boondoggle that’ll cost the American taxpayers trillions of dollars, put the country deeper in debt, and castrate the economy.
Seriously, go ahead and stick your Democrat fingers in the light socket, again. Big bonus points if you can get “card check” on the agenda too.
