Waxman-Markey hot air

"Are you asking me?", Rep. Henry Waxman admits that he hasn't read the massive climate change bill that he's pushing through Congress.

Rep. Waxman says he "trusts the scientists". Of course, he's actually referring to the 51 government appointed authors of the IPCC "summary for policy makers", not the 650 international scientists who dissent over Man-Made Global Warming claims and certainly not the 32,000 scientists who last year went on the record as being opposed to the IPCC's claims of human induced global warming. No, not those scientists.

Then there's the video below from the Heritage Foundation shows how the global warming tax will kill jobs and the economy while doing nothing for the environment.

Waxman-Markey Global Warming Tax: The cap-and-trade tax proposed by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Edward Markey (D-MA) is disguised as environmental legislation when it would have little impact on global temperatures. In fact, it is a massive energy tax that promises soaring household energy bills, major job losses, income cuts, and a sharp left turn toward big government.
