In an attempt to hoodwink the American people, Harry Reid plans to rename the phrase “cap and trade.”

Looking for a less-averse phrase than cap and trade, Reid has called his new efforts “heat-trapping pollution.”

Democrats are realizing that Americans do not want a cap-and-trade bill and the devastating economic effects that would go along with it.

In response, Democrats are dropping the term to try and spin the bill in a new way.

Senate Democrats hired Drew Westen, an expert at discovering political messaging which tugs at the heart strings of American voters.

Westen told policy makers to create patriotic and national defense themes in order to gather support for energy proposals.

These desperate actions are the last-ditch efforts of a dying proposal. Reid and the Democratic Congress do not seem to understand that America does not want this bill because it would increase taxes, destroy jobs, and increase the cost of energy for businesses and individuals.

It can be repackaged and reworded, but the cap-and-trade bill still remains disastrous to America’s future.
