Democratic congressmen Henry A. Waxman and Edward J. Markey have authored a provision in a climate bill that would permit citizens to “sue the federal government or private businesses over greenhouse gas emissions.”
Of all the pea-brained, irresponsible, moronic “ideas” these two congressmen have been associated with, it would be difficult to find one more costly and divisive than this one. During a recession, in a global economic meltdown, these two clowns think it would be just fine and dandy to impose a huge new potential liability on the federal government and practically every private company in the U.S. – not that it wouldn’t be a horrible idea at any time. And this, in spite of – to put it charitably – the lack of scientific consensus concerning both the extent of so-called greenhouse gas emissions, and the risks entailed.
How ya likin’ that socialism with a human face?
