So what does global-warming legislation have to do with the oil spill?
Good question, because such measures wouldn’t do a thing to clean up the oil or fix the problems that led to the leak.
The answer can be found in Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s now-famous words, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste — and what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
*** and ***
The logic linking cap-and-trade to the spill in the Gulf should frighten anyone who owns a car or truck. Such measures force up the price at the pump — Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs thinks it “may require gas prices greater than $7 a gallon by 2020” to meet Obama’s stated goal of reducing emissions 14 percent from the transportation sector.
*** and ***
Emanuel was wrong. The administration shouldn’t view each crisis — including the oil spill — as an opportunity to be exploited, but as a problem to be addressed. And America can’t afford $7-a-gallon gas.

I think the should pass the cap ‘n’ tax bill.
And, when the economy tanks, and And, folks pay a Cnote for a fill up. And, they can’t afford to go to work.
There will be the revolution that these bozos want. And, like some French aristocrats found out the hard way, they may be the ones removed from the gene pool.
At least their crazy Socialist ideas will get a proper send off.
American will collapse under 7$ per gallon gas. The economy is build on cheap energy.
Will this be the event that collapses us, like the Roman Empire, and all the empires of human civilization?
