Markey – the last sane congressman
The Republicans have gone past declaring their ideology as law – they are now declaring their ideology as reality. They increasingly sound like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claiming that there is no homosexuality in Iran.
In the face of this onslaught, we have Rep. Markey:
Arbitrary rejection of scientific fact will not cause us to rise from our seats today. But with this bill, pollution levels will rise. Oil imports will rise. Temperatures will rise.
And with that, I yield back the balance of my time. That is, unless a rejection of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity is somewhere in the chair’s amendment pile.
