GLENN: We’re going to do a control case, here, just a little control case. Just hypothetically speaking here on a control case. Hypothetically speaking, a Republican, a Republican chairperson, Republican chairperson of, let’s say an energy and commerce chair decides to present a bill and for fun let’s say it’s a global warming bill, and in this Republican global warming bill let’s say that it was close to 1,000 pages long and it is of, quote, the utmost importance, even quote, especially if we, you know, hate mongers actually care about the planet. Remember, hypothetically you care about the planet, and this is the utmost we’ve got to pass this bill. Let’s just say that that Republican chairperson was confronted with a detail from the bill that he wrote. He was the author. Remember, he was the author. So now let’s say that this author of a global warming bill that is of the utmost importance to save the Earth forgot some of the information in it. Would this oversight by a Republican chairperson on a bill which he authored be considered acceptable by the Democrats or the Republicans? I’m going to go with big fat no on that one. But for fun let’s say this whole situation hypothetically was a Democratic chairperson of the energy and commerce committee who wrote the bill, wasn’t aware of its contents, instead blindly followed the scientists from the United Nations. Yeah, but that would never happen, right?
VOICE: Before I ask the question to counsel, did you know that was in this bill?
VOICE: Are you asking me?
VOICE: Yes, sir.
VOICE: Well, I certainly don’t claim to know everything that’s in this bill. I know that we left it to we relied very heavily on the scientists, on the IPCC and others and the consensus that they have that there is a problem of global warming, it’s having an impact and that we need to try to reduce it by the amounts that they think we need to achieve in order to avoid some of the consequences. That’s what I know, but I don’t know the details.
VOICE: I’m asking a question
VOICE: that rely on the scientists.
GLENN: This is unbelievable. Remember, he relied on the UN scientists to put a lot of information in. UN scientists, the IPCC, who we relied on putting a lot of stuff in here. "I can’t say because we relied on the scientists who were telling us about global warming." The details are now coming out about this bill, and you can bet that this is not one of the pieces that Waxman didn’t know about. Quote: An eligible worker, specifically workers who lose their jobs as a result of this measure, may receive a climate change adjustment allowance under this subsection for a period of not longer than 156 weeks, 80% of the monthly premium of any health insurance coverage up to a maximum payment of $1500 in relocation allowance and job search expenses not exceeding $1500. That’s in the climate bill. For three years. If you lose your job because of anything in this bill, the federal government provides this to you for 156 weeks.
Remember the March to Socialism? You know, remember that a while back, you know, in our we talked about it, the climate bill? It cited Spain’s woes with the cap and trade program. Studies show that only one in ten green jobs that are created is permanent. For each permanent green job created, 2.2 jobs are lost elsewhere in the economy. This bill is the end of our republic. This bill puts almost everyone on the dole. Obama says that he will create 5 million new green jobs. If he does that, according to the research now coming out of Spain that did this program, he will cause 11 million jobs to be lost elsewhere in the economy. So 11 million people under the climate bill will start getting climate change adjustment allowances. 11 million people getting $3,000 to find a new job and that’s just the beginning of it. I’m not a scientist, but I do have a calculator. That’s $33 billion for the one clause on one page in a 1,000 page bill that our representatives who wrote it say "I don’t really know everything that’s in this thing." That doesn’t count paying 80% of all those people’s health insurance costs. Do you think this is ever going to stop? I’m starting to think this bill that trusted the scientists to write it instead of the authors would have been a better fit in the March to Socialism quite frankly.
