Didn't we learn anything from CALIFORNIA?
 
Cap and Trade has historically been another way to defraud taxpayers. California was very lenient in their laws on this so it failed even with the best of intentions. Larger, well FUNDED companies would give their tax credits to smaller companies and both would continue their same policies. (NEED I SAY THERE ARE ALWAYS LOOPHOLES). We know that they are trying to pool money from US taxpayers to give to countries that have heavy pollution rates. DON'T FALL FOR THIS. Shameful!
