VoteVets group goes after Thune

I saw this ad on TV over the weekend, so I’m passing it along to you.

I presume that the "bipartisan clean energy bill" that is mentioned in the video is really a reference to two bills — the Senate Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act and the House American Clean Energy And Security Act. Both pieces of legislation include a proposal known as "cap-and-trade" that would put a cap on nationwide greenhouse gas emissions and create emission allowances that could be traded on an open market (companies that need to pollute beyond their allocated allowance would have to buy allowances from other companies.)

Thune has said he’s against cap-and-trade because he thinks affected energy companies would pass on the additional costs of their allowances to energy consumers.
