Re: “Boxer Unveils Historic Climate-Change Bill

Wow! I provided a link in my previous post to the senate cap & tax bill that is 801 pages long, dated 8/21/09. The new version at Senator Kerry’s website has 821 pages and is dated 8/30/09.

I can't keep up. Will your senator read it? Will you have a chance to read it? Will our supposed watchdogs in the Press have a chance to read it?

Re: “Boxer Unveils Historic Climate-Change Bill

It is nice that the Senate Cap & Trade bill (in its current form, I can’t keep up with the added pages) is on-line.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/documents/DEC09610_xml.pdf
However, that gave me the opportunity to note a very distressing fact: Section 744. INTERNATIONAL OFFSET CREDITS, will provide the global redistribution of wealth that is so desired by the leftists. This is our future being given away to foreign countries where corruption is rampant (well, it's also rampant in Washington DC, but that is another problem).
Often, the SO2 (acid rain) cap & trade program of 1992 is held up as an example of sucess, and yes it has worked. However, that plan was debated on the floor of congress for 6-weeks. It did not permit international offsets.
This international plan for GHGs will be rife with corruption.
Also, like the House version, will 300 pages be added to the bill at 2am on the day that it is voted on and passed by the Senate?
Get a grip folks, we are being had.
