Senate Dems Prepare to Sneak Through Tax & Charade

The coup de grâce to our capitalist economy, Cap & Trade, has gone under the radar, but is still in play. This outrageous act of sabotage (“likely to be the biggest tax in American history” per the Wall Street Journal) passed the House, and prior to being thrown out of office this fall, Harry Reid plans to get even with the voters by slipping it through the Senate for Comrade Obama’s eager signature.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is about to take over as stage manager in the uphill push to pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation.

Whenever the word “comprehensive” appears in any Big Government undertaking, the American people are in for serious pain.

In an effort to keep the bill in Reid’s hands, the sponsors — Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) won’t officially introduce the bill in the Senate when they unveil it to the public next week.

Remember Lieberman’s participation in this unfolding catastrophe next time someone tries to pass him off as a moderate or a man of principle. If he would take part in Al Gore’s alarming attempt to seize power after losing the 2000 election, it’s unsurprising he would crawl into bed with the likes of Hanoi John Kerry and the quintessential moonbat RINO Lindsey Graham.

Even some Democrats smell a decomposing rat:

Already, some senators also are raising red flags about the committee process, which they warn may be circumvented if the Kerry-Graham-Lieberman proposal moves directly into Reid’s office.

“These bills need to go through committee,” said Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.). “If you’re talking about making major deals on energy policy, it needs to go through the Energy Committee. If you’re making major deals on tax policy, it needs to go through the Finance Committee. I mean, if you want to get it done.”

But things are done differently, now that we have Obamunist “transparency.” Draconian bills that will radically lower our standard of living are rammed through by any means necessary, with details kept hidden.

If the Dems could impose the intensely unpopular ObamaCare debacle, Tax & Charade ought to be a cinch, since unscrupulous Repubics (Lettuce McStain, Newt Gingrich) have shown a willingness to climb aboard the ecofascism bandwagon. According to Frank O’Donnell of Clean Air Watch,

So far, there are no Republican big dogs willing to sniff Reid’s hind quarters on this issue.

Apparently Grahamnesty, who has lodged his snout halfway up Reid’s colon, doesn’t count as a big dog. But his traitorous example will not be helpful when it comes to corralling other RINOs.
