It Already Passed the House

Our Democratic Socialist Party

"Cap and trade" is a euphemism for limiting the quantity of energy an entity may use. If government controls what comes out of the pipe, it automatically controls what goes into the pipe. By setting an arbitrary limit on emissions at a level known to be less than is required by the business, and then arbitrarily setting a price for excess emissions, a business must either reduce its operations or pay the government-mandated extra costs. Regardless of how it may be described, any government-mandated cost is a tax. Therefore, any "cap and trade" program is, in reality, a "cap and tax" program.

This program is designed to give government the power and the mechanism to increase the cost of energy produced by fossil fuel to a price higher than the cost of energy produced by wind and solar sources. This agenda item will give government the power to essentially control the economy, by controlling the supply and price of energy that runs the economy. It will also give government the appearance of protecting the environment, which is a sop to environmental organizations and to the international community. And it will extract windfall taxes to allow government to redistribute America's wealth to achieve the social equity goals of the Democratic socialist majority.

'Cap and trade' your freedom

"Cap and trade" is not a solution to climate change. It is a prescription for taking America down as a world power, as a free nation and as the most prosperous country on the planet.

This is sad. A once proud nation cutting itself off at the knees, and the American people are hypnotized and can't pull themselves away from their own little worlds long enough to notice. I guess we do get the government we deserve. And now we'll have to pay for it.

Minority Leader John Boehner: Climate bill a 'pile of s--t'

When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, "Hey, people deserve to know what's in this pile of s--t."

Why don't they ask the rest of them why they passed another bill without reading it?
