HR 2454 a.k.a. Cap and Trade

don2( Cap and Tax  –  Part 2)

Getting back to the Cap and Trade Bill, this is designed to make each company create a certain ‘cap’ on their maximum amount of carbon dioxide emissions. This cap is based on a measured baseline amount. And each one of these companies is given a set amount of emission credits. (Wonder who set the emission credit level? I’ll just bet it was another one of those Democratic liberals). And so then the company must make sure they do not exceed the set amount they are credited with. If they do, they must purchase or ‘trade’ credits with other companies that have extra credits.

First of all, this will turn out to be quite an expensive endeavor for each and every one of the companies that provide us with energy. Therefore, all energy costs will rise. This will make a great impact on all the people of this country, the rich and the poor. It will mean all of their energy costs will rise. In fact, it could cause as much as a 20 percent increase in electric costs almost immediately. And by 2030, there will be a 250 percent increase at the retail level. This is already known and attested to. And here we are in 2009. That means that it will probably increase twice that much by the year 2030.  Who is it that makes up all this drivel that we all have to live with? What is going on in this world that we, as citizens of the United States, seem to have nothing to say about any of the bills that are being rammed through Congress with this new administration? Better vote Republican as soon as you possibly can.

Remember Jimmy Carter’s Dept of Energy and the exorbitant costs to run that bureaucratic mess.  This Cap and Trade bill will probably force the government to have a whole new department which should cost  billions to run.  Just like Jimmy Carter’s Department does today.

Meanwhile, contact any of your Senators and Representatives.  Tell them you don’t want this Cap and Trade bill.  Now that you know what it is.  I don’t think THEY – the liberal Democrats – want any of us to know what is actually in the bill or what it will cost.   All the energy companies are opposed to this bill.  They will be forced to charge more for their services.  Or go out of business.  And no one wants that to happen.  We need them.  We need the energy for this growing country.  And we don’t need the Democrats who always tax and spend.  Remember the old adage, ‘give them an inch and they will take a mile.’  The Democrats certainly fit that niche.

Once Again, Another Bright Idea?

Well, you’ve heard it said, ‘give them and inch and they will take a mile.’ Certainly true of the Democrats these days.

I’m sure you have heard of the Cap and Trade bill which has been proposed  by President Obama. It is also known as the Waxman-Markey Bill, and it forces companies in the United States to limit carbon dioxide emissions. In the first place, whose idea is this? Some egotistical, always right person who thinks they know what is best for all of us – as usual. I see nothing wrong with our world today. I think I must have a completely different outlook towards this planet we live on than the outlook any of the Democrats have. It is my assumption that this is God’s planet. It is God’s world. It is not our world. We are not in charge here. Like it or not, God will take care of his world. God knows we drive cars and He knows we have electricity and He understands we heat out homes and use the water for our lawns and all those things that we, as human beings do, every single day. This is what God expects us to do. He knows about every single thing that has ever been invented, patented, or used. And He will take care of this world just fine without a lot of help from all these Democratic liberals who think only THEY know what is best for all the rest of us.
