Palin stated that Obama's administration knows THAT CAP AND TRADE WILL CREATE JOB LOSSES and have added a 4.2 billion dollar provision to for unemployment benefits to deal with it. WTF are they thinking ???

"Job losses are so certain under this new cap-and-tax plan that it includes a provision accommodating newly unemployed workers from the resulting dried-up energy sector, to the tune of $4.2 billion over eight years. So much for creating jobs." Sarah Palin

The authors of the bill are also concerned -- so much so that they included the program Palin refers to. Should workers lose their jobs, they would get 156 weeks of benefits, including 70 percent of their average weekly wage, help paying for health insurance, job training and employment search assistance.

So, Palin is correct that the bill has a program for displaced

give'm hell Sarah!!!

S&F. But this is not surprising - it's just more facts that the Obama admin is hiding from the public in order to get their legislation passed.

Job losses? Higher taxes? Who cares, when we are "saving our planet from global warming er climate change er excessive CO2 emissions? Never mind that anything we do will be nullified by India and China, who will not follow the same rules. They are satisfied with taking the jobs away from us that we will inevitably lose because of CRap and Tax.
