Sen. Ben Cardin on cap-and-trade. Washington Post:
Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.) called cap-and-trade “the most significant revenue-generating proposal of our time,” and said it would be difficult to pass without reconciliation because Democrats would be forced to accommodate a handful of Republicans as they did in the debate over the president’s stimulus package. Although winning use of the maneuver is unlikely, Cardin said, “a lot of us don’t want to give up without a fight.”
It’s like tax-revenue Lotto for these characters. They go to bed dreaming of all the socialism they can implement if only cap-and-trade could pass.
