Dems Pass Cap and Trade Bill

Get ready to pay MORE.

The liberal lefts are doing their best to economically bring this country to its knees. I don't know if any of you actually read this bill, but the price of EVERYTHING just went up.
More jobs will be lost as people now will have less money to spend. On ANYthing.
By raising taxes on domestic companies whose production process 'emits harmful gases' or 'uses fossil fuels', these politicians are crippling the economy by forcing these companies to scale back not only on production (diminishing availability of products thereby theoretically driving up demand thereby justifying price increases to offset loss), but also on man-power necessary for production. (This means MORE people in this country will lose their jobs.) I'm not an economist, but even I can see failed logic.
By forcing ethynol production, they thrust this 'green initiative' industry into the mainstream, touting 'cleaner burning' and 'fuel efficiency' both as benefits. Oddly enough, it actually costs MORE to refine these oils into a useable form of energy, and causes the price of corn to go way up. Humans eat corn. Cows eat corn. Corn food products are EVERYWHERE.
Follow closely: If corn growth is allotted to fuel production, demand will go up. Farmers who now produce OTHER vegetables will now grow corn instead. These other vegetables, now more scarce, will also become more expensive. Corn normally used as food products for both man and livestock will become more expensive.

Before you say I'm wrong, let's look at EVERYWHERE ELSE. China. Russia. South America. Japan. India. Pakistan. Any other country with manufacturing facilities. These folks aren't hampered by the environmental or labor restrictions to which companies in OUR country are forced to abide. They belch pollution (un-checked) and practically utilize 'slave labor', both by employing children and paying pennies a day. They forego our trade agreements by illegally flooding our markets with inferior and sometimes dangerous products. They don't have to deal with labor unions or provide any benefits.

All the while, they and the liberal left media are crying 'foul' and making The United States of America the 'bad guy'. The media doesn't hesitate to report anything negative about America
and condemn Americans, and will always paint us in a bad light. It's sickening.

To quote obama: “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”
The above was taken directly from his Inauguration Speech.

I could go on (and probably will later), but I'm so disgusted I can't see straight.
