Just saw a poll. 80% of registered voters including 64% of republicans favors the deal.
Why? so our energy would cost 300% more than it does now like it does in California or Germany?One of my biggest disappointments with Obama was that he didn't push for massive investment in green, sustainable, and renewable technologies. China has 1.3 Billion people. Their emerging middle class has more people than we have in our whole country. China has already passed us in car sales and with in a decade or so will likely pass us in total economy size. India is already number 6 in economic size, and is developmentally only a few years behind China with almost a billion people. Resources ARE going to get scarce and we will need to get many of the from China. We WILL be fighting wars over those resources. It's moronically short sighted that we haven't launched a moon shot worthy campaign of investment in renewable and sustainable energy and everything else. All I can say is I probably won't be around to see this country die a slow painful death due to the extreme shortsightedness of our leaders.

Trillions have been spent on 'green energy' in the US and it's still cost prohibitive.
