Whats that Two senators introducing a bill tomorrow How many bill are introduced every day We have seen bills on this with many senators It could be never brought up even for a vote In the past many things where put on the bill to get brood support This appears not to be so So if we are now looking to cit spending om social programs where going to spend on subsiding industry Who going to vote for that
Yea the president might want it There is nothing that he does not want to spend more on You have to show that the republicans want it and have not

The last couple of years, HR 1835 had about 75 Republican co-sponsors signed on and about 75 Democrat co-sponsors signed on, but you are right, now the politicians will be looking a lot harder at how to pay for things, and rightly so.
I'd like to take a shot at answering that question, and I think republicans do want it.
First, Exxon Mobile bought XTO energy, a natgas, last year for 31 billion dollars. Chevron is now the biggest natural gas producer in the U.S. Chesapeake energy now has a market cap of 21 billion. Encana is a 25 billion dollar company. Con Ed is a 15 billion dollar company. With these market caps, and especially with big oil interested and owning natgas, I would say that makes a strong case for republican support.
