Markey Compares Climate Change Legislation to Susan Boyle

Global Warming Subcommittee Chairman Edward Markey(D-Mass.) said that his committee's climate change bill is the "legislative Susan Boyle -- everyone underestimated it until it started to sing."

Susan Boyle entered the international spotlight back in April after she wowed the audience and judges on "Britain's Got Talent" with her voice, despite her unpolished look.

On Thursday the Energy and Commerce Committed released their climate change bill, bringing a key democrat on board, Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.). Markey was joined by Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif) and Boucher at a briefing announcing his support for the legislation.
