Senate Moves to Bar U.S. Airlines From EU Carbon Curbs

The U.S. Senate passed a measure that would effectively shield U.S. airlines from a European Union program designed to curtail aviation emissions.

The bill, supported by the airlines, was approved early today before lawmakers adjourned to campaign for the Nov. 6 election. Under the measure, which must be reconciled with similar legislation passed by the House last year, U.S carriers would be barred from participating in the EU emissions-trading system for carbon credits.

Different principle.

US State has the right to regulate State action.
USA is neither subject nor subservient to EU.

NATIONAL Sovereignty. Look it up.

Yet another example of Congressional Democrats ignoring Obama.

They won't consider his budgets, recognizing they are fiction.

Obama canno even lead his own party because they recognize his policies are unrealistic.
