Cap & Trade Updates

Around 3:30 this morning another 300 pages were added to the bill. Giving the house members no time to read it. Haven't we been down this road before?

ENRON is an original sponsor of this bill. If that doesn't make you against it, I don't know what will.

Greenpeace says that this bill will do nothing to decrease emissions.

Obama's EPA is saying it may actually increase emissions.

The republicans asked to read the additional pages early this afternoon. They were told it wasn't available. What are they hiding?

In Spain, for every job green job that is created, 2.3 jobs are lost.

This bill is expected to reduce manufacturing jobs by 1.5% by the year 2012.

The Governor of Virginia said he wouldn't pass this bill in his state as it would hurt them competitively. The Governor of Virgina is also the DNC Chairman.

As of 4pm, they are 8 votes short.

From talking to other bloggers, the phones are so busy that you can't get through to congress. Keep trying!!!!

Newsvine, a part of MSNBC is 80% against Cap & Trade. As you can imagine, the posters on this site lean left.

Well, this passed, but not by much. I have hope that it won't get through the senate.

they are saying it won't get through the senate. We have to double our efforts. We need to start writing the letters now.

I can't believe this bill and what it can do to our economy and energy costs. What is Washington thinking?!
