Democrats say they are going to force Republicans to support their Cap-and-Trade tax by attaching it to a bill to regulate offshore drilling, believing that no one would dare oppose such a bill in the wake of the recent Gulf oil spill. Senate Democrats Plot 'Impenetrable' Path to Victory for Unwritten Climate Bill - NYTimes.com I hate to think it but I am beginning to wonder if the spill was an accident- the cap and trade was dead in the senate before the spill. I only hope the rebublicans aren't dumb enough to help dipshit socialize more private industry. we need more regulations like we need to have syphilis. What we need is for the government agencies which dipshit is responsible for to do their job. He has known for over a year that they weren't so it's as much his fault as it is anybody elses.
