Obama's Plan for Enviro Cars As Cap and Trade Legislation Through
Obama touts plan for cleaner, more efficient cars
Barack Obama's new fuel and emission standards for cars and trucks will save billions of barrels of oil but are expected to cost consumers an extra $1,300 per vehicle by the time the plan is complete in 2016.
Obama on Tuesday planned to announce the first-ever national emissions limits for vehicles, as well as require an overall or industry average fuel efficiency standard at 35.5 miles per gallon...
Administration officials said consumers were going to pay an extra $700, anyway, for mileage standards that had already been approved. The Obama plan adds another $600 to the price of a vehicle, a senior administration official said, bringing the total cost to $1,300 by 2016.
Democrats are also moving their cap and trade legislation through committee this week. The cap and trade plan will cost Americans $700 to $1,400 dollars per family per year.
Barack Obama admitted in an interview with The San Francisco Chronicle during the campaign that cap and trade energy policy would "cause electricity prices to skyrocket."

And the systematic destruction of the US marches on.

The whole problem is this is all unnecessary. There is no need for Cap and Trade. First, we would be the only country punishing our citizens for using 'fossil' fuel. Any benefit that would be gleaned from the reduction in our emmissions would be offset by China and the rest of the world.
Second, a prosperous America is not one of Obama's goals. Punishing America for its extravagant life style is the purpose of this punitive Tax. Spreading the wealth around is his goal to return the country to its rightful owners, the poor. As if people have made money off the poor. This is what the left says all the time. That statement by itself is an oxymoron, how does one get money from the welfare state.
And Third, I think his goal is to rid the country of a conservative party. He will accomplish this with the help of ACORN doing the census. Redistricting and gerrymandering, the country will belong to the democrat party. Which will be a complete

It looks like I'll be driving one of them pretty soon, the Flintstone Mobile that is. Might be cold in the winter but maybe OK on a warm sunny day. I would say this Obama character is a joke, but in reality he is our worst nightmare. Yes, I agree with you Mark.

How will Obama's "poor folk" afford these cars and pay these energy bills? Oh yes, that's right. The government will pay for them out of the 80% income tax the rest of us will be stuck with.
One of the politicians goals is for government run mass transportation. There will be automobiles available, but only for the elite. Not for the average person.

I used to believe that Jimma Cotta was the worse POTUS in our history, but Barry Hussein O'Vomit has proven in 4 short months that he is 1000 times worse. And to top that off, he is a traitor who must be stopped.

Omphalomancy and Necromancy overwhelmingly override any semblance of rational thought in the lemmings, they have even elected their 'Frican witchhdoctor to think for them with his teleprompter. This is strictly a tax to fund the one world order of the UN.

Mark, thank you, well said.
It sure seems like that and I beleive it
is absolutley true. They want to get rid
of the conservatives. Not only the dems
want us gone, but many within the republican
party are pushing for that to happen. I
don't remember anyway this ever being such
a huge thing of attacking conservatives
from within our own party. And the outrage
is that it is our standards that was used
always that our party stood for.
Dems and liberals have infiltrated our
party to take it down imo.

Bob A., I am trying to ride my
bicycle more so my car lasts longer.
hahaha Nick said it won't matter though
if the government forces us to upgrade
or have to buy one of their enviro
cars. No way, I could not afford that.

Tom, I had not thought of that, I bet
they do try that. Massive people moving
transportation. Maybe that is what Obama
meant by lots of jobs working on roads etc.
that he mentioned during his campaign.

Clinton was bad a criminal, but Carter

that each one had and his own thrown in.
