The Republicans and Democrats are not happy with one another, and today's argument over a proposed energy bill in the House is bringing out the nasty.

One Texas Republican is shocked by the "venom" he hears toward the oil industry. Meanwhile Democrats are trying to add $16 billion in new taxes on the oil companies. The vote may come this weekend.

Of course, the White House has already promised a veto of either energy bill, the one passed by the Senate and the version now before the House.
