Open Thread

by Mary

Oh, that Congressional energy bill that was written to encourage renewables? Oil and gas companies are really, really unhappy with it because it raises taxes on their profits. And not surprisingly, the White House stands adamantly with their exceedingly rich backers. So what will you do to make sure it doesn't get watered down by the special interests?

What was one of the best things about the recently passed provisions in the House bill? Cutting the obscene tax subsidy for buying Hummers.

Take it away.
