From a June 2007 Corner post by Iain Murray:
In a disastrous move, the Senate passed the bill to make energy and just about everything else less affordable last night, 65-27. … The result will be much higher prices for gasoline, appliances and less-safe autos, but not (for now) for electricity.A check of the roll call shows that both Senators Clinton and Obama voted for it.
Could this be a good campaign issue for McCain? Maybe, had he voted against this bill. But he didn't show up for the vote.
It's galling to see the politicians who supported (or did nothing to stop) this bill rail against its eminently predictable results less than a year later.
