Cap-and-trade anyone? Let's hope not. Dick Morris was on Jamie Allman's show this morning on 97.1 FM Talk touting his new book, Catastrophe. Morris identified Claire McCaskill as a Democrat who could be swayed to vote against the measure. Use this link to send her an e-mail voicing your opinion. Hopefully, Senator McCaskill will listen to her constituents' voices.
The Reuters story linked above did contain one hopeful factoid . . . "the last time either party had a filibuster-proof 60 senators was 1979 when Democrats held 61 and Democratic [sic] Jimmy Carter was president." Why is that hopeful? Just a year after the Democrats had their last super-majority, the American people rebelled against liberalism and Ronald Reagan was elected president.
Here's hoping for another rebellion against liberalism in the 2010 elections.
