Tweleve Hundred Pages of What?

Overnight,at 3 AM, House Democrats tacked on to the "climate change" bill a 300-page amendment, making the entire bill more than 1200 pages long.

House Minority Leader John Boehner(R-OH) nailed part of the problem.

“Is there anything we aren’t regulating in this bill?” Boehner asked, leafing through the pages. He wondered if the community group ACORN qualified for certain grants. He asked why an energy and climate bill was “trying to solve the problems with Fannie (Mae) and Freddie (Mac).”

Of course, the entire necessity for "climate change" legislation itself is questionable.

The bill passed 219-212.

Legislation by speed, first the bailout legislation and now climate legislation, are completely ignoring Paul Volcker's advice to slowdown and think about what is being called for. Speed is the refuge of the crooked and paid for politician. Somewhere late last night, Goldman Sachs insiders popped more bottles of champagne and got ready to turn the lights on at their carbon trading desks.
