Paul Ryan on Cap and Trade

Here's Wisconsin's own Paul Ryan speaking on the floor of the House regarding Waxman-Markey (Cap & Trade).

There really is no need to debate just how severe the problem of man made global warming is, or if it is even a real phenomenon, since the bill itself offers so little in that regard. Big sacrifices for little in return is a pitiful way to legislate.

One might wonder exactly what is the purpose of this bill if it offers so little in the way of reducing CO2 emissions worldwide. It would be crazy to suggest that the purpose of such legislation was to hamstring the US economy while those in the developing world were allowed to run free, wouldn't it? Is it really possible that there are members of congress so enamored with a vision of global equality of outcome that they would pursue such an agenda?

Where's my tinfoil hat?
