“Anti-Bankster” Mary Kaptur bribed to vote for cap and trade

By Tracy R Twyman

Last September Democrat Mary Kaptur of Ohio was one of the more outspoken representatives in Congress against the bailout scam. And originally she was against the carbon credit scam too. That is, until they sweetened the deal. From the Washington Times via Hot Air:

When House Democratic leaders were rounding up votes Friday for the massive climate-change bill, they paid special attention to their colleagues from Ohio who remained stubbornly undecided.

They finally secured the vote of one Ohioan, veteran Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur of Toledo, the old-fashioned way. They gave her what she wanted - a new federal power authority, similar to Washington state’s Bonneville Power Administration, stocked with up to $3.5 billion in taxpayer money available for lending to renewable energy and economic development projects in Ohio and other Midwestern states.

House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry A. Waxman, California Democrat, included the Kaptur project in a 310-page amendment to the legislation unveiled at 3 a.m. Friday, just hours before the bill was to be debated on the House floor. The amendment was packed with other vote-getting provisions, both large and small, that had been sought by dozens of wavering Democrats.

  1. I hope that federal power authority is nice Kaptur, it only cost your constituents everything including their breath.

  2. Don’t believe this is not a tax on those making under $250,000 and 95% of Americans will not get taxed. Everything this bill touches will go down the FOOD chain. Gas, electricity, food, products and services. Everything will go up, but it’s not a tax on you. Not to mention man made climate change is a myth.
