  • This is the bill they admit will increase utility costs. This is the bill that many economists feel will push jobs out of the US. Great, just what we need in this nation. All this when India and China will likely do NOTHING to improve climate change, but WILL get a bulk of the jobs that leave the US. I am sure they will blame it on Bush.

  • This would be the largest tax increase in the history of America," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., one of the seven committee Republicans, told Fox News. "I can only conclude that they don't want the public to know how much money this thing is going to cost."

  • They will own it for now but I am sure when it proves to be a burden on the masses they will find a way to blame it all on Bush.lol

  • Doesn't matter if they would "own "it or not it will be detrimental to our recovery and our every day lives.
    I pray enough Dems will not want it with this huge monstrosity of a health bill looming.

  • Think the CBO was in favor of this bill

  • The CBO isn't in favor of anything. They are a bi partisan report.duh.


    Climate-change legislation would cost the average household $175 a year by 2020, according to the Congressional Budget Office.


    CBO said "some regions and industries would experience substantially higher rates of unemployment and job turnover as the program became increasingly stringent." Forcasting a consumer price index could be 0.7 percent higher in 2020 than it would be otherwise, assuming that business cost increases are passed on to consumers.
