Republican Congressman Redubs Climate Bill ‘Wacky-Marxist Tax And Cap’

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) has a bit of a joke for you. “The Waxman-Markey Cap-and-Trade legislation is just another disguise and it’s high time that we call it what it really is: a Wacky-Marxist Tax-and-Cap bill that will suffocate America’s small businesses, ultimately strangling America’s respiratory system.”

Get it?!

The really funny part is that Broun is a doctor (as in, M.D.) so he should know that suffocation results from strangling and not the other way around. Also, that America doesn’t have a respiratory system, per se.

In his press release, Broun hearkens back to the good old days when Republicans called Democrats socialists, and limited their critique of cap-and-trade legislation to the false claim–based on an intentional misreading of an M.I.T. study–that climate legislation will cost the average household thousands of dollars.

“Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) exposed the truth behind the Waxman-Markey Cap-and-Trade energy tax and appropriately renamed it the Wacky-Marxist Tax and Cap bill as it will increase energy costs for each family by $3,100.”
