Democrat protectionists?

capandtaxThis past week, 10 Senators, including Indiana’s Evan Bayh, sent a letter to Obama declaring they would not support a Climate Change bill that hurt American manufacturers. Apparently Obama has the authority in the bill that would allow him to  enact  “border adjustments,” tariffs, on goods from countries that do not agree to an international program for carbon dioxide reductions.

From the NYT: The House bill gives the president the power to impose such penalties on goods from countries that do not adhere to an international climate change regime.

And Obama said any tarrifs that may come of the bill would be seen as Protectionist, the article went on to say….

…. ya? If you don’t protect the United States, then what are you doing in the White House?

The bill that passed the House was ludicrous. Hopefully the Senators will back up their bark with bite.
