You know, I dearly wish my prognostications were wrong more often. The house gave new meaning to "narrow passage" today as it passed the Cap and Tax..erm...Cap and TRADE bill today. I don't understand how anyone can think to get behind something like this when Barry himself, says that it is going to skyrocket everyones utility bills.
And from all reports today, the phone lines were very nearly on fire with phone calls opposing this bill, as were the emails. Once again our government pretended that the population did not exist and overruled the public will. I've said it before and I'll say it again, we have no chance of getting our government back without throwing the weasles out bodily. We can NOT afford to wait for the next election cycle, as I believe that they will find SOME way to force this through the Senate too.
If you believe Harry Reid, the Cap and Trade bill is a non-starter in the Senate, but I stopped taking Sen. Reid's word on anything. Hang on to your wallets folks! It's all downhill from here. We all know that after the Dems finish patting themselves on the back, they are going to move right into their next frenzied push into Socialism; Universal Healthcare. At some point before the end of the year, you can also expect another liberal push on illegal alien amnesty(Obama: Immigration bill coming soon) and gun control(Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009). They are gonna want to get these through the House before the mid-term election runs begin.
