Its "bipartisan opposition" and he needs all of the Democrats on board.
That would have driven up the cost of everything and people would have suffered greatly because of it.
In Obama's own the words "The cost of energy would necessarily skyrocket".
Gas would have gone up by a large amount.
Food would have gone up by a large amount.
The cost of constructing a home would have gone up because any materials that needed transporting, in other words everything in a home would have gone
All goods including everything from laundry soap to pharmaceuticals would have gone up.
The poor would have been hurt and hurt badly. People would have to cut back on food, medicine, heat, lights, clothing and pretty much all
The plan was total insanity! Gore and Goldman Sachs would have made billions over-night as they control the distribution system for the carbon
credits. It is not even a theory about that.
It is a fact that they will get filthy rich on top of all the wealth they already have and the poor would have footed much of the bill. It won't harm
the wealthy, but it could destroy the poor. The elderly without the ability to pay heat would no doubt see actual deaths related directly to this.
This is no joking matter and everyone from Obama to Reid is lying and don't care.
No tax on the poor he said, but no problem sticking a huge surcharge through energy on everything we buy. How anyone could not understand this is
beyond me. It's so simple to comprehend and they were betting a majority of voters were total illiterates to be cleaned out of their meager means of
support. Sick, sick people concocted this plan and right here and now I'm saying anyone who was for this has sociopathic tendencies and enough money
themselves they don't care about anyone else.
