Magna Carta says:
What does not pass thru legislation, is implemented via the budget process. How you get it your way, with or without approval of Congress, is described in "Rules for Radicals".

>>Under the proposed cap-and-trade program, all GHG emissions credits would be auctioned off, generating an estimated $78.7 billion in additional revenue in FY 2012, steadily increasing to $83 billion by FY 2019.>>

Unregulated oil companies = .99 cent gas right?

Ron Paul has gone away when are you following?

Ummn there is no cap and trade Cato.

Axiomatic!!! says:
Regulation has little to do with the price of gas. It's the value of the dollar.

OPEC made it clear during the Nixon term that if we're going pay them in fiat currency, the more we print, the more they'll charge.

Just look at gold.

Magna Carta says:
The majority of cost of gas is fed, state, county and local taxes. The low exchange rate of the US Dollar also adds to the cost in the US. The oil company makes 8-10 cents per gallon.

That was why I was being sarcastic. :)

Your socialist 'dream' is full of shortages, including energy, food and housing.

Cap and trade is 100% unrelated to increasing gas prices. Nice try, magna. It's the effort that counts, right?

Wow, it's like a really bad highschool scenario being played out on a national political stage.

You conservatives latch on to the 'prices will go up' section and completely ignore the whole 'energy companies will pass along the cost to their customers and cause' part that he said before it.

If we're going to do cut and paste with the president's words, I give you George W Bush, performing 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday'
