And it's likely to be over global warming. Vested interests vs. do-something advocates. Don't make us pay vs. fear of catastrophe. One top Democratic Congressman has promised to send President Obama a global warming bill before the end of 2009.
It's not likely this bill will be radical. Even many Dems are saying they want to be sure industry (read "Oil and coal interests") are OK with whatever's passed. We might see some sort of carbon emissions permit system, cap and trade. That will likely lead to another huge government giveaway, this time it will be permits to pollute. Pollution as another path to profit. Ain't capitalism grand? The global warming disbelievers now seem to be in distinct minority in Washington. [poll id="129"]
