Cap-and-trade 'dead' in US Senate: lawmaker - Yahoo! News
WASHINGTON (AFP) – A Republican US Senator said Thursday that he and Democrats working on climate change legislation would unveil a new bill in mid-April, but warned that a "cap and trade" proposal was "dead."

"I will continue to work on producing that new product, a new way to achieve energy independence, create jobs, clean up the air and hopefully we'll have something for you after the Easter break," said Senator Lindsey Graham, referring to a two-week recess that ends the week of April 12.

Graham keeps saying cap-and-trade is "dead." Does he realize there's a C&T system IN HIS BILL? Maybe we shouldn't tell him.

Head stooge Grahmnesty is on the job. Does he even know it's all based on a series of lies?

So other than taxes, what's the plan here? Make gasoline and electricity costs more. I bet this works especially well for those with foreclosed homes and no jobs, despite the laser like focus promised by Obama.

How quickly we forgot, the lame-stream media counted the cents of increase for gasoline daily when Bush was president, now not a peep
