    Thats why Forbes loves cap and trade.

    I dunno, I'm real skeptical.

      1. Most importantly: jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. Not gonna happen thru Congress. This is the only way to make it happen.

      2. It's worked great for sulfur dioxide/acid rain. Real success story.

      3. C&T might make some of the rich richer, but it will also make even more richies poorer. It's a net cost for business. The bottom line is that money comes out of corporate pockets and goes into the U.S. Treasury.

        ...think again about corporate cash on hand being at a 55-year high. That fact alone shows the status quo is making corporations filthy, filthy rich. The point of my proposal is to get some of that wealth out of corporate bank accounts and into the pockets of people who now don't have jobs.
