    No, they know which party to vote for if they believe in a good quality standard of living and which party to vote for if they suffer from guilt and having a good quality of life.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And hopefully the American people know what is over the top partisan rhetoric.

    Neither do any of the House members that voted on it.

    The rest of the world was passing us by due to the lack of efforts of the prior administration in advancing alternative energy. Even China is exporting more solar energy than we are right now. This bill is a step in the right direction.
    Too bad it's crappy science. If solar energy was all that, the entreprenuirs in America would have been marketing the hell out of it. But, since it doesn't sell, it's not happening. China is one of the biggest polluters. Why are they exporting solar energy instead of saving all that money they are spending on oil????

    Would that explain why they didn't watch Obama's infomercial?

    Again...drawing a line in the sand, the Republicans show where they stand on the environment....as do the Democrats.
    Correct. The Republicans, as well as 44 Democrats, showed they do not vote for 1200 page job killing bills they haven't read.

    Americans have a clear picture of which party they should vote for in the next election depending upon how they feel about the environment.
    We do. Don't worry.

    Good. A president and a congress that finally care about the environment. Now, on to getting that public option for health care passed. Things are looking up!

    So, how many jobs is this bill going to kill? All the other bills have killed jobs, so this one will ceratinly be no different...probably worser.
