Obama's fuel economy rules a job killer, auto dealers say - studies suggest otherwise -- @jmotavalli

Becker, who was personally ejected from Boehner’s NADA talk by Wood, is scoffing. “This is a political ploy,” says Becker. “Obama stood up with 11 auto company CEOs and said this is what we can achieve on reducing global warming if we cooperate, and the Republicans can’t stand it. They want an amendment that would put the standards on ice for a year or two until, presumably, a Republican president comes in and permanently kills them. It’s not hard getting such an amendment through the House — in the current climate, they’d pass a law repealing the first law of thermodynamics — but getting it through the Senate and enacted into law is a much bigger hurdle.” The Senate is likely to defeat such an amendment, and even if it sailed through there it would face a certain Obama veto.
