Global warming bill stumbles

Roll Call reports that negotiations over global among House Democrats "blew up last night." This sticking point is over how agriculture will be dealt with in the bill. It seems as if there is some bad blood between the two sides. House Agriculture Chairman Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) told Roll Call: “Many didn’t like it. ... The bottom line is we’re not going to consider anything unless we actually see the language and have it for three or four days so we can figure out what it does.

Why "agriculture" is singled out for consideration in this bill as being damaged too severely is just the tip of the iceberg.

Why are other businesses, those on fixed incomes....basically everybody else in the country, being ignored?

A bill too bad for farmers to endure can hardly be goos for anyone else.

Is the goal in Congress to get us back to a subsistence farming economy?
