FreedomWorks Applauds Passage of Johanns Amendment

Washington, DC - Senator Mike Johanns (R-Neb) offered an amendment yesterday to the Senate Budget Resolution to prohibit the use reconciliation in the Senate for legislation involving a cap and trade energy tax system. Some Senators had hoped to use the procedural tactic of reconciliation to avoid a full debate on cap-and-trade legislation by inserting language in the budget bill to circumvent traditional debate procedures.   Congress is supposed to be about debate, and limiting debate rules on critical votes runs contrary to the spirit of the institution.

Cap and Trade Energy Tax Victories

President Obama's budget proposal working itself through Congress right now includes funding from a $600 billion cap and trade energy tax.  The plan would place a limit on the amount of carbon emissions that a firm is allowed to produce.  They can then sell their rights to carbon to other companies that wish to exceed their limit.  Cap and trade increases energy costs by restricting output and raising costs to producers.

Reconciliation, What Is It?

If you've been paying attention to what's going on in Washington recently, you've probably heard the word "reconciliation".  What is it?  It's a legislative process intended to allow a budget bill to be considered without filibuster.  In the Senate, it restricts debate to 20 hours and amendments are limited.  Without the option of filibuster, a bill in the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass.  A super majority of 60 votes is required to end a filibuster to move legislation normally.
