Why is it so hard to get Cap & Trade passed? Am I missing something?

    The main argument against Cap-and-Trade is that fuel prices and electric bills will rise significantly.  America is a huge place full of Americans: we love to drive, we love cheap bills, and cap-and-trade will affect different Americans differently. 

    In states that are heavily dependent on fossil fuel combustion for power generation, for example, electric bills will rise fast and far compared to hydropower and nuclear states, which will certainly increase the demand for fewer carbon emissions, but in the short term, it just doesn’t seem fair.
