Kerry-Graham-Lieberman Cap-and-Tax Deal Implodes In Wake of Video Confession

Washington, D.C. April 26, 2010 – The lead global warming cap-and-tax bill to be unveiled in a Monday press conference by Senators John Kerry (D-Mass.), Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), and has imploded in the wake of covert video captured by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

In the video, the trio are caught on film plotting the re-branding of their scheme to impose massive, crippling new energy taxes on the American people.

Rumors ricocheted around the nation’s capital on Monday.  Why did Sen. Lindsey Graham disown the Kerry-Graham-Lieberman cap-and-trade bill only two days before it was to be unveiled at a major press conference?  Many news stories suggested Graham was disappointed in the level of support he was getting from Team Obama and Majority Leader Reid.

The real reason, however, is that Graham saw the CEI video exposé, “Tales from the Spin Zone: How the Sausage Known as Kerry-Graham-Lieberman Was Made,” and realized his cover was blown.
