Close Win Predicted For Cap-and-Trade Bill
Made popular 1893 days ago in
The House could vote today on a measure to cap U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, with Democratic leaders predicting a tight victory for a behemoth bill that has grown more complex with each compromise.
The heart of the bill, which now runs to 1,201 pages, is a plan to reduce emissions to 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. To do that, it would create a cap-and-trade system, in which polluters would be required to accrue buyable, sellable credits for all the greenhouse gases they produce.
But the bill also contains a system of caveats, safety valves and rule changes meant to satisfy unhappy Democrats. The result is legislation that could transform the U.S. energy industry - and allow both Wall Street and the Corn Belt to build a side business in carbon.

How does Obama and the Democratice Congress think normal Americans earn in their paychecks? We do not make enough money to cover the Obama Administrations costs for Health Care, and Energy Costs. I would like to see the CBO put together several regular American monthly budget and tell us how much poorer we will be when we start paying more for Health Care, Food, Gas, Electricity, Day Care and other normal costs that are going to rise due to new Obama Laws.
