No One Knows What Cap-and-Trade Is
Well, not no one, but only a quarter of people polled by Rasmussen Reports could correctly identify what “cap-and-trade” legislation pertained to.
Given a choice of three options, just 24 percent of voters can correctly identify the cap-and-trade proposal as something that deals with environmental issues. A slightly higher number (29 percent) believe the proposal has something to do with regulating Wall Street while 17 percent think the term applies to health care reform. A plurality (30 percent) have no idea.
One reason why Republicans are trying to pre-define the legislation as an “energy tax.”
