Rationale ignorance at play. The fact that President Obama might pull off the "Cap & Tax" trick and sell it as "Making the polluters pay" is testimony to our rationale ignorance.
Quote from our president illustrates his science acumen:
At a time of great fiscal challenges, this legislation is paid for by the polluters who currently emit the dangerous carbon emissions that contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe.
We get the government we deserve.
This graphic illustrates the winners and losers - no surprise here for those of us who have spent at least an hour or two paying attention!!!!
