  •  FACT FACT FACT as today proved this Bill and all (0+ / 0-)

    others are PURE FANTASY BILLS no Bills except Republican Wet-Dream Bills will be allowed to even get voted on much less passed as the Hagel Filibuster is Proof-Positive of that,so as much as this is a good thing just plain forget about it becoming law along with anything doing with Guns,Banking an ETC..

    •  From my post: (0+ / 0-)
      Nobody expects the proposals to have an easy time of it. That's because we have a Congress that is still filled with representatives and senators who refuse to accept the extensive scientific evidence that human-caused global warming is happening and others who accept the evidence but are unwilling out of cowardice or the objections of their campaign contributors to take action to slow it down or remediate the severe impacts climate change will cause or already is causing.
      And the final paragraph:
      While the legislation will, as noted, no doubt encounter serious opposition in the House and Senate, it is precisely the kind of approach that is needed. Waiting to introduce it at a time when it has a better chance of passing makes no sense. Delay is just another form of denial. Americans need to know what progressives will back when they do have the political clout to deliver. Just explaining what we would do can help gain the votes to give us that clout.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
