Energy Bill Mess

The House and Senate are taking up energy bills.

It's a mess.

We're not sure the Democrats are going to come up with anything better than the Republicans.

A group of Senate Democrats is pushing coal liquefication. We don't need cars running on coal!

"Democrat" Rich Boucher, of Virginia, is even pushing a measure to prevent states like California from leading the way on reduction of carbon emissions. Must make Bush proud.

Others are pushing to increase subsidies for corn-based ethanol. We don't need more corn ethanol, either. We're already spending billions and all it's doing is raising food prices.

What's wrong with these people!

We're beginning to think we'd be better off without Congress.
