Good News from Washington

It seems like years since we been able to write that headline. Today we find that the Senate Democrats are giving up on plans to pass a U.S. energy bill. We have feared this bill which has been named Can n Tax for the amount of money that was going to passed on to the tax payers. That bill was going to cap the emissions of carbon dioxide. The democrat leadership said that the Republicans refuse to support the measure. We love anytime Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid fails and everyday that goes by that he cannot push another bad bill on the citizens is great. It is a joke for him to say Republicans that were not willing to back a comprehensive energy bill, was terribly disappointing. We have watched while Democrats have been trying for more than a year to pass a plan that charges utilities and other major polluters for their carbon emissions. This silly legislation even in a compromise the idea to limit emissions only from utilities also failed to attract the 60 votes needed to advance. Lame Duck Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who we cannot wait to lose his job in November said the democrats would focus on a narrower bill that responds to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and improves energy efficiency. We are all hopeful this will have as much support as the first version. November cannot get here fast enough.
