Waxman and Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey, who chairs the climate change subcommittee, noted the intensity and difficulty of the negotiations.

Markey called the bill “a legislative Susan Boyle,” referencing the British woman who shocked viewers with her polished singing voice. "Everyone underestimated it until it began to sing.”
