Brownback lies about cap-and-trade

U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback is spouting nonsense in an effort to denigrate a bill intended to halt climate change.

In a taped address to the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, Brownback recently warned that cap-and-trade legislation in Congress would slap a family of four with a $1,500 annual increase in energy costs.

But as Media Matters points out, Brownback’s $1,500 increase seems to have been pulled from thin air.
