OR THEY'LL DO WHAT?:

Senate liberals threaten rebellion on energy bill (Alexander Bolton, 06/17/10, The Hill)

Liberal Democrats in the Senate are threatening to vote against energy legislation if it does not address global climate change.

After watching centrist Democrats and Republicans shrink the 2009 economic stimulus package, strip the public option from healthcare reform and slice a pending package of safety-net program extensions, liberal senators are reaching the limits of their patience. [...]

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to include provisions to address the Gulf oil spill and strengthen regulation of deepwater drilling to the energy legislation, but Reid on Thursday declined to commit to including climate change provisions in the bill.


They're right on this one, but are they really going to kill the entire bill if they don't get their way?
