Senate to vote this afternoon on Baucus sham amendment

The Hill reports this morning Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote this afternoon on an amendment by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) blocking an attempt by activists in the EPA from imposing federal caps on carbon dioxide, a radical power grab projected to destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs and send prices for food and energy even higher.

Reid has also scheduled votes this afternoon for Democrat “alternatives,” including a sham amendment by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) intended to give vulnerable allies of Big Green cover in their 2012 re-election campaigns.  The amendment purports to be an “exemption,” but only for selected employers, and it will likely be repealed once the election is over.

Baucus, a loyal puppet of Gang Green, is working to protect jobs in D.C.’s environmentalist establishment by destroying them in Montana.

There are only hours left until the Wednesday afternoon vote.  Call your two senators at 202-224-3121.  Tell them to vote NO on the Baucus sham amendment and YES on the Inhofe EPA amendment.
