Forty One! John Kerry Climate legislation collapses in the Senate.

In a victory for the free market and American competitiveness John Kerry’s climate change legislation has hit a major roadblock in the US Senate. According to the Boston Globe due to the bolting of a key GOP ally Kerry does not have the votes to move his jobs killing legislation through the Senate.

In one of the proudest moments of his long legislative career, Senator John F. Kerry was poised to unveil a long-awaited climate change bill tomorrow that would put a price on carbon emissions and provide billions of dollars in incentives to industry to drastically cut greenhouse gases.

Cap and tax is dead for now!  Without the support of Senator Graham, it is going to be tough for Kerry to get over the 60 vote threshold. Thank you Senator Brown for standing firm against cap and tax.
