Next Car on the Obama Tax Train - National Energy Tax

Have you ever watched a train coming out of a tunnel amazed at just how many train cars are actually attached? Every time you think "that one must be the last one" another is actually right behind it.

Obama's Tax Train Express is just like that - we just keep seeing another after another after another...

Keeping citizens distracted by the very real threat of government-run health care, the next equally troubling threat is poised to strike every citizen - a national energy tax.

Vigilant House Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member Doc Hastings exposed this stealth strike yesterday.

“Americans should know that the threat of a National Energy Tax is as real as ever. In fact, earlier this week, a Senate Democrat reported that committees are on track to move forward with their National Energy Tax bill by the end of September."

The cost:
  • 2.5 million American jobs

  • decrease our Gross Domestic Product by 2.5 percent

  • raising gas prices by 58 percent.

Are you kidding me?

Hasting continues, "As the West suffers from a 10.2 percent unemployment rate – the highest regional rate in the country - now is the worst time possible for the Democrat Congress to move forward with their job-killing National Energy Tax."

Stop the train!
