The Senate majority leader is shelving efforts to include cap-and-trade as part of a energy bill, dealing a blow to one of President Obama's major priorities....
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said Thursday that neither he nor the White House had persuaded 60 senators to support even a limited proposal seeking to restrict emission from electric-power companies. Mr. Reid offered no timetable for action on such a bill, but said Democrats would continue trying to build support for such legislation. [full story]Imagine that. A phony crisis ends up with no support... even among those who hate to see a crisis go to waste.
Meanwhile in Great Britain... an energy crisis is brewing. That puts in perspective Sen. Harry Reid's statement that Democrats would continue trying to build support for such [Cap and Trade] legislation. Sometimes stupidity can be terminal. Let's hope it is with regard to Mr. Reid's political career.
