Tax and Tax

Posted by: Hammer / 8:02 PM

There's really nothing remarkable in Tony Perkins's latest Washington Update. Democrats are bad, historically bad, nothing like this has ever happened before...blah blah blah. This is interesting, though:

This time around, Senator Reid promised that at least three [judicial] nominees would be confirmed by Memorial Day; however, that holiday came and went with only one nominee approved. In response Senator McConnell used Senate procedure to temporarily delay the disastrous global warming cap and tax bill currently being debated on the Senate floor. We hope this is a precursor to even bolder action.
In common parlance, the Senate bill would set up a cap and trade system. You cap the amount of carbon emissions permitted, then allow companies that reduce emissions below the cap amount to sell their excess reductions to other companies. The Family Research Council is calling this "cap and tax". The AFA is calling it "tax and trade". It doesn't matter, I suppose, as long as they can call it some kind of a "tax".
