passed the Waxman-Markey "cap and trade" scheme 219-212
. Eight Republicans sided with the Democrats on the bill.
The cap-and-trade bill is said to be able to save a whopping seven percent of the total temperature increase by 2050
while handcuffing our economy and possibly cutting off international trade.
Here are the following Republicans who jumped ship to vote with the Democrats on this massive energy boondoggle:
Mary Bono Mack (Calif.-45)
Mike Castle (Del.)
Mark Steven Kirk (Ill.-10)
Leonard Lance (N.J.-7)
Frank LoBiondo (N.J.-2)
John McHugh (N.Y.-23)
Dave Reichert (Wash.-8)
Chris Smith (N.J.-4)
