More Silliness from Shimkus

The House Energy & Commerce Committee is continuing the amendment process today for the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. The committee's Republican leadership is introducing hundreds of proposed amendments, hoping to stall the bill. Over at Really? Seriously?, Hasan breaks down one of the sillier GOP arguments against the bill:

Mr. Shimkus goes on to make his case by citing the completely debunked Spanish study on how clean energy investments led to high unemployment.

MR. SHIMKUS: Gabriel Calzada Alvarez from Spain came
and asked "America, are you crazy? We've lost 22,000 jobs! You want to
model your (unintelligable) after us?"

If you haven't already, please take a moment to tell your member of Congress to support the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009!
