Senate Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman Charles Schumer of New York told MSNBC that the likely strategy is to try to attach a carbon pricing and energy production strategy from Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., to an energy plan approved with bipartisan support last year by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee."Kerry has a proposal that has pretty broad support," Schumer said. "He's going ... to get a chance to offer it in the form of an amendment."
"I'm exploiting the maximum of what you can ask a piece of metal to do."
