Joe Sestak was among the 219 congressmen — the vast majority being Democrats — who voted, Friday, to set limits on U.S. energy production, ostensibly to fight global warming. If this legislation passes the Senate it is expected to raise the price of gasoline to $5 per gallon (and the cost of transporting food, clothing, building materials etc.) and double the cost of electricity.
The Dems, btw, killed Republican amendments to suspend the program if gas hit $5 a gallon; if electricity prices rose 10 percent over 2009; or if unemployment rates hit 15 percent.
If these things happen send Joe a thank you note.
And if this crowd thinks global warming is such a crisis why are they fighting tooth and nail to rip down long-standing hydro-electric dams? Why do they push to add snarl-creating toll-booths to freeways? Why do they oppose nuclear power? Why do they insist on applying OSHA regulations to telecommuters?
Their actions belie their words.
