Stop Obama's $1,500 per family energy tax increase

Friday, May 29, 2009

http://www.americansolutions.com/energytax/

Another big tax on American families is just what we don't need right now in the midst of this deep recession. It's bad enough as it is but now Obama wants to take $1,500 out of the pockets of American families yearly. It's called "cap and trade." This video is very telling.



Of course the Democrats and Obama who are pushing this cap and trade proposal don't call it a "tax," but for all intents and purposes it is.
You might recall the words of Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), the former head of the Energy & Commerce committee, who said in April: "Nobody in this country realizes that cap and trade is a tax, and it's a great big one."

Well Mr. Dingell, it seems people are taking note. Last Thursday, Rep. Rangel made the following admission regarding the Waxman-Markey energy tax:
"Whether you call it a tax, everyone agrees that it's going to increase the cost to the consumer. At the end of the day ... if there's nothing there to repay [consumers] for their financial expenditures, it might be difficult to fight Republicans who call this a tax." (emphasis added)
Indeed, everyone agrees that this bill will increase costs. Everyone, that is, except for a small group of elites who absolutely trust the government to take away our money and redistribute it equitably (and presumably better than if Americans just kept their hard-earned dollars).

They are denying that an upfront cost, even if offset later, is still an upfront cost.
It's a tried and true game. Sneak tax increases by the American people by calling it something else. But don't be fooled this time. Please go to the website and sign the petition. Just say "no" to this new tax.

Obama is doing a very good job. We all should work along with him. Remeber it was the GOP who cause most of this mess?
