    Death of manufacturing bill you mean? What an idiotic idea and bill. Why do dems hate capitalism and private industry so much? Her husband has made enough cash I gues, plus she has pension and medical for life, what does she care about ruining the economic recovery?

    This is exactly what the country needs. More spending by the government to create thousands of jobs, while simultaneously single-handedly saving the environment for the whole planet. It has been proven over and over again that the amount of debt the country has doesn't matter so we should take money from taxpayers and foreign governemnets and banks as fast as possible so that we can spend the money. The government should keep borrowing more and running up deficits as high as they possibly can – we can always default and just NOT pay China and the other countries back whenever we want – what are they going to do about it? I think Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama are the only thing holding this country together. Personal responsibility stresses me out anyway – instead we should just follow the US Government and spend spend spend!! I am going to go out and buy myself a new set of golf clubs.

    She is an abomination and should have been removed as Speaker a long time ago. Stop thrusting this garbage down our throats? Will the next election cycle come in time to end the damage? Probably not....

    Pelosi always says "This bill will pass" when Odumbo wants it to, she is such a puppet and an ugly puppet at that.

    I guess she didnt get the memo about the e-mails that surfaced weeks ago either. What a idiot. Ugly too, opps I already said that, sorry.

    Perhaps self-preservation could "win" over capitalism's self-servicing, predatory, competition do or die, or the slash and burn the Earth mantra! But I'm not gonna hold my breath, but maybe I should! Breathing is getting more and more unhealthy! Peace

    Someone please stand up to this woman and stop her from destroying the lives of working people. It is unproven theory and nothing more. Lives should not be destroyed due to lost jobs if this stupid bill passes. Why can't people wake up to what is going on???

    Of course it will, it is another back door attempt to take over industry, under false pretenses to further the cause of socialism and destroy the capitalism that has made this country great. It is part of the socialist agenda for this country and why these traitors will all be gone starting in 2010. Obama is a liar when he said he would not tax the middle class, the first bill he signed was an increase in middle class taxes. Obama lies and liberals lie. They are dishonest, unethical liars/

    Joe "Waffling Wally" Lieberman is the quintessential politician, saying or doing anything necessary to stay in office. Maybe he should change his last name to Weaselman, something more befitting his style and actions.

    Kudos to Franken for shutting down the windbag.

    The climate bill will not create jobs. It will shift jobs. Example: You shut down a clean coal plant, and open up a wind farm. Those at the coal plant lose their jobs, and people are hired to build and maintain the wind farms. So no change in number of jobs. Only difference is that it will make a lot of elite people (IE Al Gore and Co.) richer, and most Americans poor/poorer due to the new taxes they will be burdened with!

    Get it?

    I wonder where Miss Pelosi has her money invested?

    Like Queen Nan, the Climate bill is a complete joke! A tax sin shake down to provide funding to profiteers like herself and 3rd world despots and dictators! In a word, THEFT!

    Pelosi is selling snake oil to Ed Henry. The climate bill will not pass next year. It is a net cost increase to all Americans and a jobs killer too. When the American people figure out what this means, there is no way it will pass. After the elections in 2010, I am sure that Reid will be forced into retirement. We can only hope that Pelosi will be gone soon thereafter.

    Who is the real sniffit here? Every other day when I come here, there a Sniffit wanting to cooperate with the president, and a sniffit who cannot seem to find anything the president does, "right" in his point of view. People, at least be creative or smart enough to come up with your own names.
    We need to get our heads out of the sand, and get our act together in helping the environment. Here are the steps to do so:
    1. Admit there is a problem with our environment
    2. At least claim that human interference is speeding up warming in the natural cycle of our atmosphere
    3. Pull together, figure out how to solve the problem, and then get off the couch and put that plan that helps the environment into action.
    Oh, before the first step is enacted, here's what you must do, get over our sweet selves. If everyone followed those simple guidelines, then we will be so much better off in the future then we are right now.

    Show me the raw data and let some scientists and statisticians that do not have a dog in this fight analyze the data and determine whether there is, or is not AGW.

    If they don't give us access to the data, then they shouldn't get any money.

    If the data supports their claim, what are they afraid of?

    Seems to me that the discussion when I was growing up in the 70's was then next ice age.

    Perhaps we should look at that big bright nearby star that gives the earth all of its heat and consider its effect.

    Once again. No raw data, no money

    there is no reason to pass this bill....other than maybe having a clean renewable source of energy. However the day I get taxed for my personal use of fossil fuels is the day I move out of this country...make no mistake if this bill passes that day will come sooner than u think.

    i believe that the POTUS should borrow her sack since they are bigger than his........ he might be a better Commander in Chief instead of a man in girls clothing.... if his wife didn't control most of what he does i am certain he would not know how to tie his own shoe...... He is a puppet to the liberal elitist's and a despicable person.... Cap and Tax will not pass, nor will healthcare.... if they do you will see a mass exit of Democratic senators and congressman come 2010..... for all the tree huggers-- "DON'T HATE THE PLAYER, HATE THE GAME"

    Nancy is once again up to her old, and I do mean OLD tricks again. The woman really needs to STFU. Just go away. The American People have voted Congress the worst on record according to polls and that is largly due to this bumble headed, speak with fork tongue female. How are those Marsh Mice Nan?

    You know what, I give up.

    It's impossible to reason with what's left of the GOP. This gaggle long ago made up its mind that:

    Climate change = hoax
    Taxes = bad
    America = infallible

    Although the GOP base isn't as big as it used to be, they still exist in large enough numbers to stifle progress. I say let the teabaggers and Palinites take over. Let them witness first hand what happens when you preserve the status quo. Let them be subjected to the rule of a Palin presidency. Let them finish the American decline that Nixon started.

    I'll weep from far away.
