Last Friday evening Congress passed (with the help of eight Republicans) a 1,200-page bill that was not even read by its members. The cap-and-trade bill, which The Hill touts as “Climate bill Pelosi’s biggest triumph yet“, is going to cost a family of four a whopping $114,915 by 2035. John Boeher, as minority leader, read part of the 300-page addendum to the wide-ranging bill which covers everything from electrical outlets down and involves the EPA, IRS, and Department of State, among others:

Boehner also pointed out that “2.5 million jobs, on average, will be lost each and every year as a result of this bill.”

So it’s not surprising that he recognizes the bill for what it is: Boehner: Climate bill a ‘pile of s–t’

When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, “Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of s–t.”

Normally I don’t approve of people using bad language, but it was time someone in Washington recognized what is steaming right in front of their noses.  Thank you, John Boehner.

Now let’s hope the Senate Republicans realize cap-and-tax for what it really is, and reject it.
