Moderate Democrats Urge White House to Drop Cap-and-Trade

Moderate Democrats in the Senate are urging the Obama administration to stop urging passage of climate change legislation with cap-and-trade provisions in 2010. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and several other Democrats are speaking to the White House and party leadership about setting aside efforts on cap and trade.

“I am communicating that in every way I know how,” Landrieu said. Although cap-and-trade provisions are central to Democrats’ plans to curb global warming, some senators in the party are urging a focus on health care and the economy instead.

Farm Bureau’s grassroots “Don’t Cap Our Future” campaign against cap-and-trade provisions of climate change legislation continues to build momentum across the country.

  1. The momentum to get the current administration has to keep increasing , If the House and the Senate really want to help the economy of the USA now and in the future they will need to forget about the Cap and Trade concept and let American Agriculture be the world leaders that we can be.
