Admitted Socialist Bernie Sanders and in-the-closet Socialist Barbara Boxer, how’s that for a dream team?
Via Daily Caller:
Liberal senators are helping President Barack Obama make good on his plan to address climate change during his second term, and are set to announce comprehensive legislation on the topic later this week.
Democratic Sens. Bernie Sanders and Barbara Boxer will hold a news conference on Thursday to announce new legislation that would put a fee on carbon dioxide emissions to help fund green-energy projects such as wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass.
The legislation would also compensate consumers for higher energy bills.
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Obama threatened to use his executive authority if Congress failed to act on climate change.
