Democrats Abandon Comprehensive Energy Bill

Democrats Abandon Comprehensive Energy Bill

Giving up without a fight? If we can't pass legislation limiting carbon (and encouraging renewable energy resources) after overwhelming evidence of climate change and the Gulf of Mexico disaster, when can we?

President Obama should fight for a strong, effective bill, within the government and with a public campaign. Then, the Senate Democrats should force the issue, letting the Republicans mount an actual filibuster, if they dare.

RE: Democrats Abandon Comprehensive Energy Bill

You're right, Obama barely lifted a finger. http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/07/22/with-no-obama-push-senate-punts-on-climate/

I'm willing to believe Reid when he says it was impossible to pass a bill, but he should have at least forced the "moderate" GOPpers to vote against it.

Front-page post on this soon.
