Baucus CO2 amendment will choke life out of the economy

Senate leaders met today to plan a series of votes on amendments intended to block an attempt by radicals in the EPA to impose federal carbon dioxide caps on employers, The Hill reports this morning.

The first amendment likely to be voted on?  A false-front bill by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) intended to allow endangered Gang Green senators to claim they blocked the EPA’s plan, while still allowing it to barrel ahead, in their re-election races next year.

It’s the latest attempt by Baucus to expand government and protect bureaucrats, at the expense of Montanans and citizens around the country.

Baucus’ plan is to protect the EPA’s job-killing bureaucracy in D.C., while killing jobs across the country and in Montana, by draining votes from an amendment authored by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) that actually blocks the radical EPA scheme.

“After three decades in Washington, Max Baucus is protecting his friends in the EPA by killing jobs in Montana,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

Call your two senators right now at 202-224-3121 Tell them to vote NO on the Baucus EPA amendment and YES on the Inhofe EPA amendment.
