Obama's Cap and Trade (TAX) He LIED To HIS Voters About No Taxes
President Obama has said that cap and trade would cause electricity prices to skyrocket. Do you have an extra $1,500 a year to spend on energy?
GOP attacks Democrats for climate proposal
H. Josef Hebert
Republicans on Saturday attacked the climate change proposal crafted by congressional Democrats and endorsed by President Barrack Obama as doing little to reduce global warming while saddling Americans with high energy costs.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, in the GOP's weekly radio and Internet address, called the House climate bill "a classic example of unwise government." The address culminated a week of coordinated Republican attacks on the Democratic proposal which would require the first nationwide reductions in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases blamed for global warming.
GOP House members used the weeklong Memorial Day congressional recess to drum up voter opposition to the Democratic bill.
The governor's criticism echoed Republican lawmakers' arguments at "energy summits" in Pennsylvania, Indiana and California and at other forums during the week.
The proposal to cap greenhouse emissions "will cost us dearly in jobs and income and it stands no chance of achieving its objective of a cooler earth" because other nation's such as China and India will not have to follow, argues Daniels, according to a transcript of the Saturday address.
"The cost for all American taxpayers will be certain, huge, and immediate. Any benefits are extremely uncertain, minuscule, and decades distant," maintains Daniels.
The climate bill would require a 17 percent reduction in greenhouse gases by 2020 and 83 percent reduction by mid-century. It advanced from the House Energy and Commerce Committee shortly before lawmakers left Washington for their holiday break, getting only one GOP vote.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she wants to take up the measure in the full House this summer.
"The national energy tax imposed by Speaker Pelosi's climate change bill would double electric bills here in Indiana, working a severe hardship on low income families, but that's only where the damage starts," says Daniels. "In a state where we like to make things, like steel and autos and RVs, it would cost us countless jobs. ... Our farmers and livestock producers would see their costs skyrocket. and our coal miners would be looking for new work."
Wild Thing's comment......
How about this, why not just have those that voted for this anti-American military hater Obama pay all the taxes and let those of us that knew better off the hook. Let them pay, they asked for this crap. LOL

Henry Waxman has to be one of the most physically ugly people I've ever seen. His moral character matches.

Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes all the way to the bone. Heh Heh Tom, even the best cooks break an egg yolk when cooking.
Henry Waxman, what a spermicidal specimen, scraped off the un-sterile speculum, Petri dished, a throwback from the process of Unnatural Selection. Consider the female of the same experiments, it has evolved to be speaker of the house. Sigh, even the blowfly has a purpose but I'm at odds with these two.

Lets NOT forget his partner in crime Markey from Massatwoshits. Another low-life from the shallow end of the gene pool.

I guess I have to ask to be put back on all of the junk mail lists again. I can throw them in the wood stove to keep warm this winter. I can hit the recycle bins for papers and visit the supermarket and take out flyers to burn.
FU Obama and your GREEN supporters.
