The California Chamber of Commerce sued the state today in a last-minute protest against the historic "cap and trade" greenhouse gas auction set for Wednesday.

Obamas Post-Reelection EPA Plans
Posted: November 4, 2012
If you think the Obama administrations Enterprise Prevention Agenda has been wildly aggressive during the past four years, believe me, we really aint seen nothin yet. A new report released by the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Minority Committee enumerates a slew of planned EPA regulations that have been delayed or punted on until after the election that will destroy millions of American jobs and cause energy prices to skyrocket even more.
Titled A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2013: Numerous Obama EPA Rules Placed on Hold Until After the Election Spell Doom For Jobs and Economic Growth, it lists and describes new rules concocted over the past year ranging from additional restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions, tougher water guidelines and tightening of the ozone standard. Taken together, they will further drive up pump prices, impose construction bans on local communities, and cripple oil, natural gas and coal production.
As the Washington Post notes, the report puts a spotlight back on the Obama EPA which has earned a reputation for Abuse, serving as a stark reminder that President Obama has presided over a green team administration that works every day to crucify oil and gas companies and make sure that if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem.
The California Chamber of Commerce could have found a candidate and supported them financially enough to almost assure they were elected.
Instead they allowed Jerry Brown to be elected back to the governor’s mansion.
I like what they are doing here, but I actually do despise them for sitting on the sidelines for the last decade. And I’d wager some of them were thrilled to see Jerry back in office.
If the California Chamber of Commerce wants to send a message they should move to Texas...
If they don't, their members will.
I don’t think you’d want this crew.
