Cap and Trade Passes the House

Earlier I posted about John Boehner's courageous stand against the cap and trade bill. Sadly the bill passed 219-212. 44 Democrats voted against the bill, and 8 Republicans voted for it. Also Randy Forbes made an attempt to offer his New Manhattan Project bill as a substitute, but the Republicans could only muster about 172 votes.

The 8 traitorous Republicans (may they be primaried) are:
  1. Bono Mack
  2. Castle (Let's see how your run for U.S. Senate goes.)
  3. Kirk
  4. Lance
  5. LoBiondo
  6. McHugh
  7. Reichert
  8. Smith (NJ)
The 44 courageous Democrats are: (Dick Morris says these people were mermitted to vote no by the party and they didn't do it out of principle.)
  1. Altmire
  2. Arcuri
  3. Barrow
  4. Berry
  5. Boren
  6. Bright
  7. Carney
  8. Childers
  9. Costa
  10. Costello
  11. Dahlkemper
  12. Davis (AL)
  13. Davis (TN)
  14. DeFazio
  15. Donnelly (IN)
  16. Edwards (TX)
  17. Ellsworth
  18. Foster
  19. Griffith
  20. Horseth Sandlin
  21. Holden

Don't believe this is not a tax on those making under $250,000. Everything this bill touches will go down the FOOD chain. Gas, electricity, food, products and services. Everything will go up, but it's not a tax on you.
