 Dems Planning Cap & Tax Bill AFTER Elections

 

Lame Duck Congress Has Nothing To Lose!

 

By Dell Hill

 

In a concerted effort to avoid having to vote “yea” or “nay” on the Obama Administration’s Cap & Trade legislation, a plan is afoot to schedule that boondoggle for a vote AFTER the mid-term elections, during what most see as a pending lame-duck session of Congress.

 

The Politico‘s Mike Allen puts this in his morning newsletter:

“EXCLUSIVE: Phil Schiliro, the White House congressional liaison, has told the Senate to aim to take up an energy bill the week of July 12, after the July 4 break (and after the scheduled final passage of Wall Street reform).  Kagan confirmation will follow, ahead of the summer break, scheduled to begin Aug. 9.  The plan is to conference the new Senate bill with the already-passed House bill IN A LAME-DUCK SESSION AFTER THE ELECTION, so House members don’t have to take another tough vote ahead of midterms.”

You can be certain that Harry Reid will invoke the so-called nuclear option in the Senate to get around a cloture vote and the Democrats have enough votes in the House so that no special rules changes would be needed for passage.

Now would be a good time for every Conservative in the United States Senate to warn of an official “hold” to be placed on any such “behind the voter’s back” political maneuver.

It’s also time for every Conservative candidate to challenge his or her incumbent opponent as to whether or not he or she approves of this slight of hand politics, and how they plan to vote.
