Video highlights from the GOP’s anti-climate-bill crusade
For the past month, House Republicans have been taking their anti-climate-bill efforts on the road, trying to stir up public resistance to the Waxman-Markey climate and energy legislation. The show kicked off in D.C. and moved on to Indiana, Pennsylvania, and California.
Now the House Republican Conference has produced a “greatest hits” reel on their travels (and if these were the highlights, we’d hate to see the lowlights). With melodramatic music and stiffs in suits, we think it could be the comedy sleeper hit of the summer.
While we’re on the topic of Republican anti-climate-bill hijinks, ThinkProgress put together a video of GOP representatives’ tirades against the bill on the House floor. In about an hour of speeches on the topic on Tuesday, various members malign green jobs as “paper mâché,” “subprime,” and “gangrene.”
