Will Sen. Martinez sell constituents out on Cap and Trade?

Former speaker of the Florida House Marco Rubio is challenging Gov. Charlie Crist for position of GOP contender for retiring Sen. Mel Martinez's seat. Rubio's public remarks suggest he is a strong fiscal conservative, something sorely needed in the US Senate at present.A Floridian forwarded an email response from Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) about the American Clean Energy and Security Act (HR 2454). Passed by the House, the act is popularly and more appropriately called the Cap and Tax bill.
