Last Call on Cap and Trade by American Elephant

Barack Obama himself has admitted that the Cap and Trade plan he supports, exactly the plan that will come to a vote today, will cause electricity rates to “necessarily skyrocket“. He knows and supports the fact that it will destroy the coal industry. (America gets half its electricity from coal). Not only will your electricity bills skyrocket, but so will everyone else’s. Every individual, every business that uses energy will be slapped with huge new costs. That means inflation as every product and service in America costs more to make, to transport, to advertise. It also means higher unemployment, lost wages, and outsourcing. It means America becomes less competitive, less prosperous and less free, as this bill represents the single largest tax and regulatory increase in American history.

All to cut back on CO2 which is not a pollutant, to prevent global warming on a planet that has been cooling for the last decade, in a climate in which man-made CO2 represents 0.03% of all “greenhouse” gasses, all based on NOTHING but computer models that have been definitavely proven incapable of even predicting CURRENT climate let alone their outlandish predictions about the future.

Nancy Pelosi is forcing a vote on this bill TODAY, because she thinks she has enough votes to pass it. BARELY.

Americans for Prosperity has produced the following list of US Representatives whose votes can be swayed against the bill if enough of their constituents raise hell.

I dont know about you, but I know my family cannot afford what this bill would do. If your Representative is listed here, please call them right away and tell them to vote NO on the Cap and Trade bill (House Resolution 2454). You may get busy signals. Keep calling til you get through. Click here to find your representatives phone number. Get your family and friends to call if you can. This bill will devastate the economy and the American way of life.
