Democrats Plan To Give You A Raise

Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation

Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 58 percent

Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent

Raise an average family’s annual energy bill by $1,241

That is the devastating raise Obama and the Democrats have in store for you when they pass their Cap & Trade bill. It has already passed the House [how did your Congressman vote?] and is now in the hands of the Senate.

The stimulus has accomplished nothing, and yet the Democrats in Congress are intent on making a bad situation worse by now passing Cap & Trade legislation that will cripple American businesses and devastate families even further.

According to Kevin Holtsberry "Voters need to understand that this bill won’t help the environment and won’t magically lead to a Utopian world of green jobs and renewable powered energy. This is big government, bad science, and terrible economics.

It is not an easy time. Jobs are scarce and there are battles on multiple fronts. But the only way to dig ourselves out of this hole is to stop digging and start making policies that help not hurt.

Cap and Trade is a dagger aimed at the economy of the heartland and it must be stopped."
