Good article in The Wall Street Journal where it seems the EPA threat has taken the pressure off the Senate to pass Cap and Trade. Why should the Senate be blamed for climate taxes when voters can blame Obama's administration and the EPA?
"In the high-stakes game of chicken the Obama White House has been playing with Congress over who will regulate the earth's climate, the president's team just motored into a ditch. So much for threats."
"The Obama administration now owns this political hot potato," says one industry source. "If I'm [Nebraska Senator] Ben Nelson or [North Dakota Senator] Kent Conrad, why would I ever want to take it back?"
PM Harper is probably smiling knowing he had the endgame figured out weeks ago. We'll do what the Americans do. (Not Much!!!)
