"I'm going to be looking for other means of addressing this problem," he said. "Cap and trade was just one way of skinning the cat," he said, strongly implying there will be others.

Feel Bad???? No you donít. I recall you saying that you might lose a couple of seats but that was price you were willing to pay. Do they even remember what they say?
