Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) is digging in on the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s claims that the administration is hiding the true costof a climate bill, despite the fact that documents they cite do not reflect any actual legislation.
“The current administration claims to be the most transparent in American history, yet it’s been hiding a report showing its cap-and-trade energy plan would cost up to $200 billion every year,” he told The Washington Poston Wednesday.
Lamar’s statements also disregard the Department of Treasury’s debunking of the “secret” memo. “The reporting on the Treasury analysis is flat out wrong,” said Alan B. Krueger, Treasury assistant secretary for economic policy. “Treasury’s analysis is consistent with public analyses … and the reporting and blogging on this issue ignores the fact that the revenue raised from emission permits would be returned to consumers under both administration and legislative proposals.”
