It might be the worst piece of legislation in the history of the world. The great assault on American industry and our free market system continued in June with the narrow passage by the House of Representatives of H.R. 2454, “The American Clean Energy and Security Act,” also known as the Waxman-Markey plan. You know it as “cap and trade.” If it passes the Senate, the devastation on our beleaguered American economy and what’s left of our manufacturing sector will be both permanent and incalculable. It is as though somebody has set out to intentionally destroy our country. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
