California's 'Green Jobs' Experiment Isn't Going Well - WSJ.com One can only wonder if the federal government's version of this will be as bad or worse than the great state of California's. My money is on worse because we all know the federal government does things bigger and more expensively than anyone else. But hey it's a necessary adjustment so we can be green right? So what if businesses go bankrupt and people lose their jobs it's for the planet. But when people say the economy needs to readjust to the bubble and recession is the price to pay, you proponents of cap and trade that have no problem sacrificing jobs as long as it's for a "green" reason rail that people can't be allowed to lose their jobs because of this recession and the taxpayers should prop up failing companies. Smells like hypocrisy to me.
