New "Cap and Trade" Today, But Same Old Crap

Joe Lieberman and John Kerry will introduce their latest "screw the citizens" powergrab today.

(Another reason to simply nuke the entire Congress and start over, by the way.)

...At this press conference, Sens. Kerry and Lieberman have both already indicated, they will insist that their scheme isn't "cap-and-trade" because... they aren't going to use that term this time around.

Oh. THAT works. We'll call it the Sesame Street Good Stuff and Chocolate for All Bill!!

...For this latest effort to hide an enormous tax and wealth transfer -- a unilateral move that guarantees jobs will be shipped to China, India, Philippines, Mexico and elsewhere -- -- these lawmakers will be surrounded by numerous representatives of Big Green.

The Robber Barons in 21st-Century clothing.

...The reason for so many businesses leaping onto the stage today is also the dog that surely will not bark when the media report on industry's touting of an enormous energy tax and wealth transfer from individuals: why do they support this? The answer is because they have been promised a slice of the spoils taken from the average taxpayer and ratepayer

Leading the parade of Corporate Rapists is Exelon, which is VERY tightly connected to Obama--as is GE, another pompom girl for this crap. Duke Energy will lend its whore's voice, too.

Lieberman, Kerry, Big Green, and the Whores.

Actually should be a Broadway show.
