Cap and Tax next? Pelosi: 2 pillars down one to go on Obama’s blueprint

Remember back during the campaign Obama kept referring to three areas of change, health care, education and energy. Well he got two so far and Nancy is now eyeing the third. 
The Hill: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said the Democrats are one bill away from completing President Barack Obama’s “blueprint for American prosperity.”

“We have passed two of the three pillars in the historic healthcare and education reform and are working towards a clean energy and climate agenda in Congress,” Pelosi said in her remarks to the California Democratic Party state convention in Los Angeles on Saturday. “And essential to prosperity for middle-income Americans is reining in Wall Street.”  

Passing Cap and Tax now will be the nail in America’s coffin and mostly likely the straw that will break the taxpayer’s backs. Since Cap and Tax already passed in the House, will Democrats use reconciliation to ram the House version through the Senate?

Now would be a good time to start reading the fine print on the Cap and Tax legislation to see what nasty surprises are buried inside.

UPDATE: PDF to HR 2454

In case you are having difficulty with the link to the Cap and Tax legislation, here is the link to the PDF version of HR 2454.

Unless I'm mistaken (and I may be, unlike our Dear Leader I am not a "Constitutional Lawyer", they can't. I believe that reconciliation can only be used once per session, and the statists shot their wad with the health care bill.

The Dems know that a fair number of them will be out the door, come January 2011. They feel like they have nothing to lose and people with nothing to lose often act stupidly and carelessly. While they have the majority, I think they are going to try and push through everything they can.

I believe you are right, trinity. (Or, at the very least, I fear you are.)

It does make one wonder, though, what Obama's re-election campaign promise "blueprint" will look like, if he gets his way with Cap & Tax, too?
