I’m hearing that the popular reaction to the passage of the Waxman-Markey electricity tax bill in the House has blown House members away. The public outrage is really hurting those who voted for it […]
Should I have filed this under “We’re in the best of hands”? How can Congressmen not have anticipated this reaction to passing a massive tax and regulation in the middle of massive economic crisis? Probably because the latter is less real to them than the “crisis” of global
warming climage change making Gaia cry. After all, one thing an economic crisis does is make Congressional fiefdoms grow and prosper. Astute observers can see how this all comes out in the end, the only puzzlement being why it’s tolerated by voters and supported by people who won’t be getting a slice of the action.
