STOP CAP & TRADE OR DEMS RISK AN EVEN GREATER SLAUGHTER IN 2010.
With the looming spectre of a 2010 Democrat massacre at the ballot box, so-called moderate Senate Democrats are begging Barack Obama and the White House to stop pushing such unpopular pieces of legislation like Cap & Trade.
After the Democrat partisan vote and passage of Obamacare through the Senate, many Dems fear that Cap & Trade will be yet another bill with no support from Republicans or the People. However, Obama does not seem to listen to “We the People,” will he listen to his own party Senators?
“I am communicating that in every way I know how,” says Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), one of at least half a dozen Democrats who’ve told the White House or their own leaders that it’s time to jettison the centerpiece of their party’s plan to curb global warming.
The creation of an economy-wide market for greenhouse gas emissions is as the heart of the climate bill that cleared the House earlier this year. But with the health care fight still raging and the economy still hurting, moderate Democrats have little appetite for another sweeping initiative — especially another one likely to pass with little or no Republican support.
“We need to deal with the phenomena of global warming, but I think it’s very difficult in the kind of economic circumstances we have right now,” said Indiana Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh, who called passage of any economy-wide cap and trade “unlikely.”?
Senate Democrats are skeptical and know that the Cap & Trade will is a loser and will adversely affect them in the 2010 elections and beyond. Just what the country needs, a tax that will restrict the economy during an economic down turn.
However, Obama seems to be on a liberal suicide mission as he knows that the Democrats are going to get creamed in the 2010 midterms, so why not inflict as much liberal/socialist damage on the US while Donkeys have an overwhelming majority. Because after 2010, Barack Hussein Obama may just be without the House and the Senate.
