#1 Taxing something means you get less of it. Here the Dems are taxing all productive activity in the entire economy.

Bammo - he's not a Socialist, he's just capitalistically challenged.

#3 This is not going to pass. Blue Dogs are scared as hell of it. It is now 1200 pages of BS. It will strangle once and for all the economy. There will be no economy to pay for it.

#4 Whenever you see the name "Ed Markey" associated with anything, assume you will be screwed in some way. His last major achievement that I can remember was "reforming" the cable TV industry.

#5 Malarkey - Exaggerated or foolish talk, usually intended to deceive: “snookered by a lot of malarkey” (New Republic).

#6 Bullshit.

behind the scenes they've acknowledged the energy price tsunami that is coming

Yeah, and you are the effin reason why.

Not only is this a titanicly large tax increase, it is not equally applied in any sense. Congress members should be laughed out of the building for this shit, yet here it is with a chance to pass. And all this just to cover a part of the democrat stimulus you betcha.

Vote it down. Vote it down now.

#7 And yet environmentalists will argue the whole thing is worthwhile, if for no other reason than to cripple the US economy. I mean, to heck with the actual goals of the bill, if it can hurt the US, then let's put our 100% weight behind it.

#8 Simi clean industries will move off-shore to some third world toilet that could give a hoot about Gullible Warming. There will be a net increase in emissions and we lose jobs.

Brilliant!

#9 Waxman actually is a dumb as he looks. The rest of the Pelosicrats with half a brain, have to worry about losing their jobs next year if this boondoggle passes.

#10 When there is no fuel nor money for it....

Is it "green" to heat my home by burning environmentalists and Pelosities in the fireplace?

#12 Waxman always looks like he just got hit in the face with a shovel.

How the hell does that stupid rat-faced little hamster keep getting elected?
