Cap and Trade Closer to Becoming Law

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,


coal-mines2-1.jpgYou may have recalled what Obama had promised during his campaign, his Plan to Bankrupt the Coal Industry.  Now, it’s just one step closer to becoming reality.  For anyone in any coal producing state, you should be very concerned with higher unemployment and higher energy costs. For everyone else, look at an additional $750 per year for each tax payer…. so if you’re a household of 2, then your family income just dropped by $1,500.  Keep in mind that China and India will go on ahead and ramp up their CO2 emissions.

So why do you care?  So what, that you’re going to have to pay an extra $750 per year in an energy tax?  So what?!  Well, it goes beyond just paying an energy tax, every single product created in the United States will cost more.  The energy companies have already said they will be passing this new ‘tax’ on to their customers.  Guess what?  Those “customers” are businesses, big and small and residential customers.  So essentially, the energy companies wont be paying more, YOU WILL.  The businesses that produce here in the United States will be seeing a spike in the energy costs and will evenly distribute that as a price increase in the products you buy, so if the Cap and Tax goes through, you will be paying more for everything you buy and use.

The vote was 219-212, a margin of only seven votes. Eight Republicans voted for this unconstitutional mess. While every member of Congress should be thrown out in November 2010 (except Ron Paul and which clearly won’t happen because millions of Americans are drowning in stupidity), these eight should be top of the list:

Mary Bono Mack R (CA); Mike Castle R (DW); Mark Steven Kirk R (IL); Leonard Lance R (NJ); Frank LoBiondo R (NJ); John McHugh R (NY); Dave Reichert R (WA); Chris Smith R (NJ).

The good news?

Arizona is now close to becoming the first state to outlaw climate change legislation. “The state Senate voted Monday, 19-10 to approve a bill banning the Department of Environmental Quality from enacting or enforcing measures with language pertaining to climate change. The bill is now awaiting House approval.” Now that Arizona got rid of their former nit wit governor, Janet Napolitano, sanity is returning. Be sure to call your state legislator and senator and thank them for voting the right way.

Who voted for Cap and Trade?

House Vote On Passage: H.R. 2454: American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (aka the single largest tax increase in American history)
