Cap and Trade Could Be Repealed

While the Waxman-Markey Cap & Trade bill will insert the federal government into every aspect of production and commerce, and be perhaps the largest tax increase in US history, the good news is that it would be fairly easy to repeal, compared to social entitlements like nationalized health care.

We should fight this tooth and nail, but we really need to prepare for the fight against the national health plan. It is sad that so few Americans really understand what is happening to their liberty here.

Even if the Republicans get back in congress in two years, they won't be able to undo all of the damage that has occurred to our liberty in the past two years. Furthermore, all too few Republicans really understand limited government, so they would only be slightly better than the statists that we have now.
