More costs when we're over $14,000,000,000 in debt! Great idea!
More taxes on private sectors when we're at the LOWEST private sector job rating, EVER in the country! Awesome idea!
Raise costs on energy to force a transition to green energy which currently isn't so prevalent because its MORE EXPENSIVE! Sweeeeeet!
Green energy is great. But unfortunately to make it prominent, we need to make it CHEAPER, not make the alternative (oil) more expensive.
While all this is going on, we get lawyers and prosecutors appointed to nearly every alphabet organisation we have. WOOT! We need less lawyering, and
more action that actually does something-- Just look at the headlines for the Gulf mess: "We're going to make BP pay, then clean up the mess"
It SHOULD be reading, "We're gonna get this mess cleaned up, THEN make them pay"
Oh and don't forget the tax cuts end this year. 2011, tax increases (for example, dividend taxes going from 15% to max 39%, estate taxes going from
0% to 40-something%, now add an extra $1500/yr in utility cost increases due to this energy cap and tax to give your money to people like our
infamous "inventor of the internet" with a house so obnoxiously NOT green energy compliant that you can see it from space.
