Reid to ‘Backroom’ National Energy Tax Bill

             Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is set to take charge of new legislation aimed at imposing a national energy tax on all Americans, according to *Greenwire*, the news service for all things environment (article available on the [Senate Republican Environment and Public Works “EPW” Press Blog here]("").)  

Called “cap-and-trade” or “climate change” or “global warming” legislation, the new attempt to place a crippling national tax on America’s energy resources is being cobbled together by Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.). According to the new report, the trio will not formally introduce the bill in the Senate when it’s unveiled next week.


Regrettably Senator Graham isn’t up for reelection until 2014.
