The Daily Show criticized the cap-and-trade bill put forth by the Democrats because it completely appeases the companies who created the problem in the first place. Stewart notes that "Democratic leaders are touting a plan that would limit emissions with a system of pollution permits, then give those polluters years worth of those permits for free."

One thing you can always count on though: even this is too strict for Republicans to support.
