Democrats Decide That Passing Cap And Trade Before The Midterm Elections Maybe Wouldn’t Be A Good Idea
The “climate bill” won’t be hitting the Senate floor this year, say unnamed Democrat sources.
The main reason sources say the prospects for the legislation are dim is because Senate Democratic leaders have decided to try to put immigration reform first on the agenda, and after that there likely won’t be an appetite for another politically divisive issue before November’s election – especially with a Supreme Court nomination ahead and a desire to stay focused on the politically potent issue of jobs.
The idea that Democrats do have an appetite for an immigration bill, in lieu of cap and trade, seems pretty laughable to me.
I think Obama is going to continue pushing to slam more of his agenda through while his party holds on to the majorities in Congress, and rank-and-file congressional Democrats are going to duck those efforts.
Because they actually want to get re-elected in the fall.Tags: bottled water, may day, sean duffy, wisconsin
