John Boehner Exposes The Truth About Cap And Trade

House Minority Leader John Boehner launched into a lengthy filibuster Friday night ahead of the House's slim passage of the disgraceful anti-liberty, anti-capitalism, anti-human monstrosity known as Waxman-Markey or Cap-and-Trade or Cap-and Tax or Cap-and-Destroy. Tradition allows for the party leaders to have unlimited latitude to speak on the House floor despite the chamber's restrictive debate rules. If there was any doubt about Boehner, he established himself as a true American patriot by standing up to the heavy-handed tactics being used by Leftists to force this disgraceful piece of legislation down the throats of Americans. Of course, the mainstream media could not cover the largest tax increase in American history because they had the more important story of Michael Jackson's death. Reality check: the "Thriller's" death, while tragic on some level, will not impact your life in any manner. The Cap-and-Trade tax boondoggle will cost each family approximately $3,000 a year. Which story do you want to know more about? As bad as it already was, the Dems dropped in an additional 300 pages of amendments in the dead of night (3:00am) to a bill that most admitted they had not read. This video shows a few of Boehner's remarks including Schmegal's (Henry Waxman) attempt to stop discussion. Typical Democrat--do not question, just do as we say.

Schmegal Waxman's objection was that the bill was being exposed to the light of day. Of course, by that time decisions had been made. A handful of liberal Republicans made the difference. A lot of Democrats voted against this disgrace and likely more would have had they not found a horse's head in their bed the night before. The fight is far from over with the Senate debate ahead and, if that passes, a conference bill which would again be a difficult fight. One interesting comment from a Blue Dog:

One Democrat was upset that his leaders would needlessly force vulnerable Dems to vote for a bill that will come back to haunt them. Mississippi Rep. Gene Taylor (D) voted against the measure that he says will die in the Senate.

"A lot of people walked the plank on a bill that will never become law," Taylor told The Hill after the gavel came down.

Interesting. Very, very interesting.
