Cap and Trade Scam

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.  Businesses would have to retrofit their operations.  That will cost money.  They will pass that cost onto consumers.”
Senator Barack Obama
January 17, 2008

This ‘plan’ to mitigate something that doesn’t exist (anthropogenic global warming) will cost US households between $700 and $1,400 dollars per year.

How’s your stimulus now folks?

    people in PA are in for a rude awakening. Electric rates are already set to go up significantly in the next 2 years due to the expiration of price controls. Tack on the Messiah’s plan to punish coal plants and make bills “skyrocket”, and we’ll see bills double.

    I’m expecting them to come up with an expensive program of “tax credits” (handouts) or whatever to help lower income people pay their bills, and the rest of us will be paying double on electric and extra tax to subsidize Obama voters’ bills too.

    I’m surrounded by hydroelectric plants here. My electricity is carbon free. I won’t see my electric bill go up, right?

    Right?

    Yeah, right.

    We’re all going to have to suffer equally – for the common good.
