29 Oct 2009 “California’s Going to Make Out Like a Bandit With This Legislation”
…so says Ohio Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) regarding the Kerry-Boxer cap-and-trade bill, referring to $385 billion in transfers the bill requires some states (including Ohio) send to others (such as California).
Senator Voinovich’s presentation includes a map comparing the states slated to receive funds with the votes cast in the House in favor of the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill. (Let’s just say he finds some similarities.)
During his presentation, Senator Voinovich asks Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman Barbara “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” Boxer (D-CA), “Does your definition of bipartisan mean someone who agrees with you?”
The video clip above includes Senator (please note, Senator) Boxer’s response.
