  •  Correct me if I'm wrong, but there was a Senate (1+ / 0-)

    energy/climate bill that was intended to be reconciled with the House climate bill, that included 21st cent. infrastructure and was a big step toward middle/working class job restoration in the country.
    It got pushed aside because of the looming 2010 elections, after the Senate stall on HCR pushed the financial reform bill back,  and jammed the Pres'. agenda.
    The gop did a good job reframing the narrative about climate change for a while, and co-opted the "jobs" narrative.
    Now their jobs agenda has been proven to be a bunch of hot air.
    The restoration of the middle class, the future of middle/working class jobs, the downpaying of the debt and the salvation of medicare/SS etc. are bound into this energy/ response to climate change/ 21st century infrastructure issue. It seems like it's time to reclaim the narrative on this.
