This is actually a version of Obama's Cap & Trade scheme at the Fisherman's level driven by one of his enviro schemers. The GOP House did well to stop it. Thank You!

The vote marked the first time a House of Congress has weighed in on the management regimen, and it looms as a setback for the Obama administration, whose most visible advocate of catch shares is Jane Lubchenco, the embattled NOAA administrator who formerly served as a top board member with Environmental Defense.

While with EDF, she helped organize a disputed scientific justification for catch shares, implying that without them, all food fish would soon be taken. Those claims have since been disputed by many marine scientists, up to and including Steve Murawski, the recently retired chief NOAA scientist who asserted last month that U.S. conservation policies have already succeeded in effectively ending overfishing.

FUBO!

In New England, where catch shares were imposed on the groundfishery last May, the effect has been typical — the number of boats has dramatically dropped and equity in the market shifted to the biggest businesses.

Obama's Lubchenco has proclaimed eliminating a "sizeable fraction" of the fleet to be her goal.

Nice way to drive Up Prices you Fcuking arses!

FUBO & FUBF!

Mayors Carolyn Kirk of Gloucester and Scott Lang of New Bedford, on behalf of their communities, have denounced the economic and social harm from the Obama catch share regimen, and NOAA's lack of concern in mitigating the economic impact.

"We are one step closer to overturning the federal government's attempt to drive the Gloucester, New Bedford, and New England fishermen out of business," Kirk said Sunday.

Now do you Loons see why everyone views the Maggot at Anti-Business and Consumer at the same time?

Obama KILLS JOBS then Cuts off Supply which in turn Raises Prices. W-T-F!

To me this doesn't make any sense. Obama hates big Pharma, big Insurance, big Banks, big Oil, in fact big anything but then he is for Big Fish? Must have been a lot of big Money headed his way. Way to go Republicans

Actually this is a bill that extends the 2006 bill the Republicans rammed through just before a Democratic congress could take over in 2007 and was hastily sign into law by George Bush. Those opposing the extension were lead by John Kerry and Barney Frank. It is about time the Republicans started listening to Frank. I suspect the only reason the Republicans changed their minds and are opposing a bill they previously wrote, sponsored and passed is because now Obama supports it and NOAA is in charge of implementing it. We know how the Republicans feel about anything that says NOAA on it.

Again La Jambone has provided us with an example of how the Republicans always try to mislead. Wisconsin schools rank above the national average in proficiency level. You see proficiency means to have a “high” degree of skill. In other words Wisconsin has more students with a “high” degree of reading skills then at least half the Country. But the Right presents their argument in a way that those who do not have a lawyers “proficiency” level in word definition could easily be mislead into believing Wisconsin is lagging behind the rest of the Country. Wisconsin is also above the national average in math. For the last two years the Republicans have been trying to push the lie that Barney Frank and Fannie Mai are responsible for wrecking the economy. Now suddenly they are trying to push the lie that it is unions that have caused the problem. Like most liars Republicans can not seem to keep their lies straight.
