Cap and Trade all you want

US House of Representatives passed the Cap and Trade Bill yesterday, what one congressman called "the largest tax increase in American history under the guise of climate change." Many have said the bill was not read by all in Congress. Everyone's waiting for Senate action. Meanwhile, the fear of higher costs for American families continues. Green jobs are promised. Spain has retrenched so many because of "greeen jobs", and the US is still pushing for these, I wonder. Of course, US beat Spain in the Confederations Cup -- maybe they think they can also beat them in the "green jobs" thingy.

Michelle talks of how the science, once again, was trumped by ideology.

Don't believe this is not a tax on those making under $250,000. Everything this bill touches will go down the FOOD chain. Gas, electricity, food, products and services. Everything will go up, but it's not a tax on you.
