At today’s House platform for Al Gore to push the investment portfolio for which he is so aggressively lobbying, we just saw something of great import, affirming what I have been telling thumb-suckers for a while now.
That is, former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Dingell said:
“cap-and-trade is a tax and it’s a great big one.”
Remember what MoveOn said last week:
“If Republicans convince voters that clean energy legislation amounts to a new tax, Obama’s plan is toast.”
So, it seems that Mr. Dingell is convinced, and his party’s cap-and-trade rationing taxes are now toast.
