This should wake some people up...
The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the
equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent.
Thats right. The Obama adminstration, the same adminstration that ran on the campaign promise that no family that makes less than $250K per year will
see any tax increases has "privately" concluded that if the cap and trade bill is passed it would be equal to a 15% income tax increase across the
board. An average of about $1,761 per year.
This cap and trade bill has nothing to do with saving the environment or preventing global warming (or is is global climate change these days.
..). It's all about bringing in more revenue for the federal government.
Here is the link to the PDF document obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute
One odd point: The document written by Jaffee includes this line: "It will raise energy prices and impose annual costs on the order of
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX." The Treasury Department redacted the rest of the sentence with a thick black line.
Notice several areas in the document that have been redacted. WHAT ARE THEY HIDING?? Why is the Obama administration hiding parts of this document.
What happened to transparancy? Another broken campaign promise.
Please people, write to your Senators to make sure they know that you are against this bill. Pass this information along, get the word out. We can't
allow this scam to pass into law.
How many broken promises until America realizes that they were duped into voting for Obama?
