"The cap-and-trade climate bill passed by the US House of Representatives in June has no chance of approval in the US Senate, a top energy industry official said on Tuesday."
So, the "GOP-8" and the Democrats who followed their leader Pelosi and caved in to her and Waxman's demands and promises to force passage of this bill, did so with no "reward" and will hurt their chances at re-election as a result?!
And this little "gem" likely didn't help the Dems attempts at passage:
"Climate Change: A Treasury Department analysis says a cap-and-trade law could cost American families more than $1,700 a year. No wonder administrators tried to keep the study secret."
What do those of you who emphatically supported this bill say now?

If they do 07 I think it will be stopped too. People are paying REALLY close attention to what this house, senate, and WH are doing and trying to pass. I don't think they are going slip anything passed unnoticed, slip is passed to get their way...yes....but not unnoticed! LOL. By the way, being against this isnt racist either. Can I just point out that this is yet ANOTHER high end bill that is going to end up costing US and maybe.....crazy I know...but MAYBE all this COST is whats pissing people off! TOO MUCH COST AND THERE IS NO MONEY! Not in our govt and not in our pockets!

I tried to reply to this earlier, but I couldn't :)
Anyway...I don't trust your source Keet. Its linked to big energy/oil, and there has been alot of talk recently about Cap and trade so I'm not convinced its dead. Back burner maybe, dead? not yet.
