Ros-Lehtinen tweets doubt on climate change bill - - and says she'll vote No

Looks like the ads in the Key West Citizen have failed to convince Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to vote for the giant climate control bill the House is now debating.

From the Miami Republican's Twitter account: "Climate change bill being debated now. I know problem is real and man made but don't see this bill as solution. Costs r high on wrkng famls."

And now this statement:  “I am extremely sensitive to the concerns raised by members of the environmental community regarding the negative consequences of climate change. Unfortunately in the case of today’s energy bill, the end does not justify the means. It places a financial burden to South Florida families and businesses. This bill would raise electricity rates, increase gasoline prices, and tax small businesses. This legislation has real costs for real folks. I intend on voting no.”
