They Want to Kill the Industrial Midwest

Here's a convenient list of rent-seeking companies who are perfectly comfortable with "Tax-n-Cap"--for their own benefit, of course.

Nevermind that it will cost you at least $1500./year (maybe much more), or that it will force manufacturing to leave the USA.

Boston Scientific, Dow, Duke, Dupont, Exelon, GE, Johnson & Johnson, NRG energy, PG&E, PNM Resources, and Rio Tinto.

Interesting to Green Hell (and others) are the folks who did NOT sign on.

Not sure what the medical companies have for "skin in the game" on Cap & Tax unless they are hoping for more favored status in DeathCare.

Duke and Excelon have nuke plants and want more of them - so that one almost makes sense. PG&E is well - they are on the west coast, what do you want. GE really wants it to make gazillions in trading carbon credits thru GE Capital - though I really wish we could sell a nuke plant or 3 or 4.

Rio Tinto had some employees get arrested in China for their version of insider trading with some government folks.
