Energy Bill Redux

Senate Democrats are still trying to rework the energy bill so that they can get it passed. But jettisoning too many of the bill’s key provisions could render it meaningless. Especially the taxes on carbon energy sources that would be used to subsidize renewables.

The Dems ought to take a page from the President’s playbook. Call this bill the “Addicted to Oil Act of 2007,” and use Bush’s own words against him.
