On the Drudge Report, this story, “8 Dems oppose quick debate on global warming bill,” expands on my post from yesterday “Unhappy Moderate Democrats Begin to Revolt.”
More cracks are forming in the Democrat Party. These eight Democrats oppose the use of Senate rules to fast track the debate on “Cap and Trade.”
The article explains cap and trade somewhat and does a great job on explaining Senate rules.
In the article, the following was said:
“Enactment of a cap-and-trade regime is likely to influence nearly every feature of the U.S. economy," wrote the Democratic senators, mostly moderates. They were joined by 25 Republicans. "Legislation so far-reaching should be fully vetted and given appropriate time for debate.
The Democrats who signed the letter, addressed to the chairman and top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, were: Robert Byrd, W.Va.; Blanche Lincoln, Ark.; Mary Landrieu, La.; Carl Levin, Mich.; Evan Bayh, Ind.; Ben Nelson, Neb.; Bob Casey Jr., Pa.; and Mark Pryor, Ark.”
As mentioned yesterday, the Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda is upsetting the People, and the People are pressuring their Congressmen. The Congressmen are breaking from the radical Democrats to save their careers. They have their own consistencies and their own political careers to think about. The People do have a voice and their polticians are beginning to listen.
Another Democrat has slowed down more of the radical agenda. It has been speculated that the Democrats want to use the same fast track rules for healthcare reform, but Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., opposes that idea.
So, Obama/Pelosi/Reid are trying to transform America, but ironically, they have met opposition at every turn from their own party moderates.
