An historic bill passed this week. Actually late yesterday afternoon, early evening. The Waxman/Markey Bill or the Energy Bill or as the President called it as Jobs, Jobs, Jobs Bill... The vote count was 219 to 212.
There were 8 republicans for it and 44 democrats against it. Believe it or not, the President actually had republican support for a bill he was for. I am sure they will be drawn and quartered by this morning, if not sooner.
This is a start, and a step toward a cleaner future. It was't a perfect bill, but it did have the support of several groups who pushed to get if passed and I am sure will be pushing the Senate when they come back after the 4th of July.
You should try to read it and then push your Senator also. It is not going to be an easy push to get it passed, as you can see by the House vote.
Here is the President.
