Senate Democrats Skeptical about “Cap & Trade” Climate Bill … Unsure Whether Higher Priority in 2009


Look what happens when a Presidents approval rating start to sink like the Titanic. Senate Democrats are now getting cold feet with the passage of the “Cap & Trade” climate bill. Suddenly, the Democrat controlled Senate is pushing off the vote on a bill they know is unpopular with the people and would adversely affect the economy. The fact of the matter is that “global warming” is not an important issue and “We the People” do not believe the rhetoric.

“It’s a difficult schedule” with many members already “anxious” about healthcare reform, Senator Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat, told Reuters when asked about prospects this year for a bill to cap emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

President Barack Obama is engaged in the toughest fight of his presidency in trying to win passage of expanded healthcare. Obama also has called on Congress to approve legislation this year to control climate change by reducing pollutants from utilities, oil refineries and factories.

Besides the need to pass the complex healthcare bill this year, which Durbin said was “first in the queue,” he also noted the need to tackle legislation imposing stricter rules on the U.S. financial industry.

Durbin said it was unclear whether the climate bill or financial industry reform would be a higher priority in 2009.

      Obama delivered another monumental speech.

      A gentle but sage oration rebuking the “rich” for plotting to deny healthcare to the “poor”…

      “Cap & Trade” will destroy the USA. Unemployment will triple. Energy prices will triple. Will destroy our coal industries.
