Liberal Democrats know that they can’t their Climate Change bill to President Obama’s desk, because it will die in the Senate.  But Pelosi is so set on satisfying her liberal base, she is going to put dozens of her “moderate” Democrats at risk by putting a Climate Change bill on the floor this Friday.

It will be pretty instructive to see who ends up voting for it.  The discussion about getting Farm Belt Democrats on board is interesting, because they are not happy.  Pelosi, however, will figure out a way to buy their vote by the time it matters.  And you and I will pay for this HUGE tax increasing monstrosity.  Even more bizarre, is that Greenpeace and a bunch of other leftist greenies oppose the bill because it doesn’t go far enough!

It’s interesting to see Pelosi trying to satiate her base, and angering almost everyone in the process.

    Americans need to really think about the meaning of the word “Freedom”. The Climate Change/Carbon Caps etc are far more dangerous to our freedoms than the King’s Stamp Act was to the founders.

    It will be very interesting to see who votes for it. Pelosi is definitely doing some strongarming behind closed doors this week. Cap and TAX is a bad idea and any Dems who are even slightly fiscally conservative will be put in a very tough spot.

    The last thing this country needs is another massive tax. No matter how Pelosi dresses this up and makes it sound nice and pretty, it is a tax. End of story. I feel badly for the Blue Dogs who actually know better but will have Pelosi breathing (fire) down their necks.
