House passes Pelosi's climate change bill


thehill.com

The House on Friday passed a monumental climate change bill, giving Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) one of the biggest victories of her Speakership and answering a call from President Obama to let the United States play a leading roll in reducing greenhouse gasses.

The bill passed with 219 votes, just enough for passage. Forty three Democrats voted against the bill and eight Republicans voted for it.

This Bill passed by ONLY 7 VOTES! Guess what, EIGHT Republicans voted for it, so THEY made the difference today in its actual passage. I cannot believe these sell out politicians, ESPECIALLY the worst of the worst, the sell out Republican crew.

Let us all hope that the Senate has more of their senses about them as opposed to their Lower House brethren!

I guess we posted at the same time. You can have the thread, and I'll transfer my comments to your thread.

This is the final nail in the coffin for the US economy.
The next 3 generations will be spending a huge portion of their disposable income on energy costs. Jobs will be lost, not gained, as Obama and Pelosi claimed, and more companies will now exit the US for countries that do not have cap and trade laws.

Two identical threads at the same time!


I'll just cut and paste my comments here, too.

There goes the ball game. Let me see, Obama has been in office since 20 Jan, and he's managed to pretty much destroy the economy of the US in that short period of time.

Obama the worse President in US history? I think he's shaping up to be just that. Probably be the last one in our history, too, since there won't be a US to be president of after he's finished with us.

This, piece of trash, has just brought down the greatest country in the world;....flame away because I don't care! But any of you who thinks this is a great, wonderful thing will have a nasty surprise waiting for you behind door #2...

go ahead...I dare you ...open it up and tell me what you find ...later on when the full force of what has just transpired has hit you in the face...

This, is a travesty.

Professor, you are exactly correct. This was a concealed TAX.

I swear to God, they're getting mighty clever when it comes to implementing taxes.

We'll be up to an 80% EFFECTIVE tax rate in another six months at the rate things are going.

Just what I always wanted.

A government job without the benefits.

Just wait until Obama's BS healthcare program is passed.

We are really getting screwed by this man and his buddies.

The only people that will be making money off this climate tax are going to be his buddies in Congress. How many did they say will actually profit from this crap?

Prof.Maybe we all should go on the public dole.That way the Government can end up paying it's own carbon taxes.

I'm waiting for a state to leave the union so I can go live somewhere without the federal government telling me what type of energy efficient windows I will soon be required to have. Everyone with half a brain knows that global warming is bunk, NASA even admitted it. This bill passing is just even more proof of how much we need a new government.

Maybe this will be what finally wakes people up when they can't afford to run their heater anymore and they freeze half to death or something

Joy!! Yay!!


Well we still have the Senate for it to get through, but I don't really have much hope. I don't even know what is going to happen. Hopefully people will wake the hell up after the taxes of this hit them.

They keep pushing this country closer to a revolt.

The bill still has to get past the Senate. Get the word out, contact your Senators. This bill must die. Nobody even had time to read it!! How can they pass a bill when they don't even know what's in it?

If this passes the Senate, it will be the beginning of the end of the American economy.

And get your ducks in a row for what WILL be coming next people...something wicked, IS already here...NOT something that this way comes...

Seems like every week for the past six months, I've been bent over for a good rooting from one Obama/Pelosi/Reid initiative after another.

Just when you think you can stand upright and stretch your back . . .

I feel like we aren't even getting the lube. Hopefully this doesn't get through the senate, and its time to take names on who voted for pass this piece of trash bill. So we can vote them out.

You're right. Once we get up to 100%, we'll have them right where we want them.

Who said slavery was abolished. We have become slaves of the socialist, left-wing Obama/Democratic administration. King Barry now has 300,000,000 serfs.
I can only hope that people listen to King Barry and volunteer- volunteer to join their local militia.

The only thing they haven't indicated they're going to tax is the tax we pay.

Oh crap . . .
