DEMS COOL ON CLIMATE CHANGE AS ECONOMIC PRESSURES ESCOLATE

(I hope you read the entire article.)
“Pelosi (Democrat – Speaker of the House) said earlier this year that she wouldn’t even try to bring up a climate-change bill in 2009 because she lacked the votes. She reversed course last month, telling the San Francisco Chronicle that the House would try to set a vote by December to coincide with a global warming summit in Copenhagen, Denmark.
One reason for the change, Pelosi said, was that the government needed the money it could get from the auctioning off of the emissions permits under a cap-and-trade program.
“I believe we have to because we see that as a source of revenue,” the Chronicle reported her saying.
That depends on how the cap-and-trade program is designed. The more expensive the permits, the more revenue they will bring in, but that will also mean higher costs for business and higher energy prices for consumers.”
You know the government needs more money in light of their spending sprees – ongoing!
Write your elected officials.
