National Energy Tax Passes House
by

The Waxman-Markey cap and trade bill has passed the House by a vote of 219 to 212. Unless momentum carries it, the legislation faces an uncertain future in the Senate. But I continue to believe this is lose-lose for the Democrats as they seek to pass the first broad-based tax increase of the Obama administration.

UPDATE: 44 Democrats voted no; eight Republicans voted yes.
