Energy Plan

Here’s what the Democrats in Congress should do now…

They should submit an honest to God energy bill to the President, one that includes a cap and trade plan for carbon emissions in the US.  One that includes a dollar per barrel surcharge on domestic crude oil with those funds going directly to a fund for research and development of renewable and clean energy.  One that raises the mileage standard requirements for American made automobiles and trucks, and one that tightens environmental protection regulations.  Perhaps even a plan for increased mass transportation projects, and tax incentives that would see an expansion of the use of railroads for freight movement as opposed to moving everything by truck.

Oh, and include in that bill the ability of individual states to approve off shore drilling in their own coastal areas…

See who would be opposed to drilling then…
