Default Democrats Strike Deal on Massive Climate Bill

This one has got to be stopped or we really are doomed.

Household Energy Tax Vote this Week!

The House is expected to take up the legislation on Friday, the first time the chamber will vote on a bill that would impose nationwide limits on the gases blamed for global warming emitted from power plants, factories and automobiles.

The breakthrough came hours after President Obama at a news conference called on the House to pass the legislation, and a new EPA analysis showed that it would raise household energy costs on average only an extra $80 to $111 a year.

"It is legislation that will finally spark a clean energy transformation that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and confront the carbon pollution that threatens our planet," Obama said. "And that is why I urge members of the House to come together and pass it."

The House bill would require factories, refineries and power plants to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the leading compound linked to global warming, and six other greenhouse gases by roughly 80 percent by midcentury and hasten the nation's energy shift away from fossil fuels by putting a price on carbon dioxide releases.

Bullcrap!!! Lying bastards!

Be prepared to pay double or triple a month for electricityy, and welcome to gas rationing.

You'll only get what the state thinks you “need.”



-It will raise your household electricity rates by 90 percent, gasoline by 74 percent, and residential natural gas prices by 55 percent by 2035, after adjusting for inflation.

-It imposes an annual burden of $144.8 billion per year on U.S. households, and it will reduce household earnings by a projected $37.8 billion.

-It will further cut U.S. employment levels by 965,000 jobs by reducing economic output by $136 billion per year-this translates to a $1,145 increase in energy costs per American household.

-It will force low-income households to disproportionately bear the across-the-board energy cost increase, as a larger percentage of the poor's income goes toward energy costs, as opposed to wealthier households.

-It sets the stage to effectively kill the coal industry as it will be taxed so heavily, it will not be able to sustain itself


If enacted, H.R. 2454 would be the biggest government takeover of the economy since the Second World War, which is the last time energy, food, and other basic commodities were rationed.

Should we be angry?

The US government is about to declare CO2 a dangerous pollutant.

Next up, water and oxygen?

Carbon dioxide is the basis of the whole natural energy cycle for life on the planet. Without sufficient carbon dioxide plants stop photosynthesis.
Without plants, the whole chain breaks down, and we all die.

This is insane. Taxing air.

But why should we care as long as they are protecting us from the greedy capitalists and giving us our fair share of the government looting, right?
