I ain't paying

As politically correct it has become to "do something" about global warming, most voters don't want to pay for it. As if it comes as a surprise. A new Rasmussen poll finds:

Most U.S. voters think it is at least somewhat important for Congress to
pass major energy legislation aimed at reducing global warming this
year - as long as it doesn't cost them more in taxes and raise their
utility bills.

But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that while
39% of likely voters favor a major energy bill aimed at reducing global
warming, 40% oppose it. Twenty-one percent (21%) more are undecided.

What we have here is another piece of major legislation--like the new health care law--that doesn't have significant public support, but which the Obama administration and Democrats insist on shoving down our throats.
