    You can tell when most congressmen are lying...their lips are moving.

    Note Waxman's assertion, vs. the truth of the bill:

    Waxman's "take:"

    If this piece of "legislation" (I can't use the language it deserves) makes it into law...every Washington politician from Obama on down should be removed from office and imprisoned for theft.

    What a bunch of thieves we've put into office.

    More idiocy:

    We'll look like Mexico. Positive spin will be that illegal immigration decreases.

    I don't get it, we have Waxman-Markey vs the CBO. The CBO numbers were not only trusted but shoved in our faces for the stimulus and health care, why do we abandon them now?

    I believe Waxman-Markey is probably using that twisted MIT report which had been refuted many moons ago but I don't want to waste the time proving it. It is easy to see their figures assume we won't convert to any alternate fuel sources which is the purpose of cap and trade.

    MIT actually came back with numbers close to the CBO but I guess you'll believe the numbers that best make your case.
