The problem with cap and trade is everyone says your energy bill will go up but no one says the same dollar amount.The president says it will cost you
the amount of a postage stamp per day , the republicans say it will cost on average 1000 dollars a year more for you .So how much will it go up is the
For me its not energy bills will go up they will.If you naive enough to not believe that I have some swamp i mean prime realestate for you to buy. Its
just that they aren't reading the 1200 page bill before they vote on it.There were 300 pages of add ons to the bill the night before they voted on it
and some reps couldn't get a copy of the add ons to read it before they voted on it and they wouldn't give the people enough time to read it is the
problem in my opinion.A second problem is the reps who are pushing this hard is invested in green stocks so i am told.
The Government can tax my electricity company all they want. My electricity company doesn't mind at all. They pass the cost on to me and what am I
going to do, go to another company when they are the only one that provides service in my area?
There is a huge difference between fear mongering and telling the truth.
Agree wholeheartedly...the fearmongering was mine.
Where is Robin Hood to save us from the oppressive taxes imposed by Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham?
The question is of course, why would we compound a crapped out economy in which 1 in 10 are unemployed and 1 in 5 are either underemployed or outright
unemployed and no longer counted as a beneficiary.
I could of course say Healthcare and creating a greater dependence on government intrusions but is that the ultimate goal? Or are we just waiting for
enough to be on the rug before it is pulled from us?
I wonder if those that feel that they are in charge realize just how little we do need them? I mean despite being left penniless and homeless on the
shore of our fathers, they can not take our ability of self-determination.
If Healthcare reform passes then you'll be taxed to pay for that on top of the other taxes and then whatever is leftover will go towards paying
energy costs. You'll be reduced to nothing but being a serf, working yes, but never having the ability to get ahead per se. This administration's
policies are not about helping the people but keeping them down. That's my opinion of it anyway. Cap and Trade is very similiar to the Catholic
Church selling indulgences. Do you think the planet is going to say "Hmm, I don't like all of these greenhouse gases, but they're paying money for
it so it's all good". It's nothing but a scam and if it passes you can see your current quality of life go down even further.
