Congress debates outrageous cap and trade legislation
Congress is currently debating one of the most outrageous and clearly irrational policies in American history. Congress wants to impose a substantial tax increase on consumers of all forms of energy. Absolutely every single person will pay this large tax. Millions of American jobs will be lost. Once the bill's restrictions kick in completely, the average family will face a new tax increase of $6,800 when it is phased in completely. This legislation is designed to punish Americans. It is based upon the premise that the America that we have come to know and love, based upon individual liberties, should be changed to one in which Congress decides how much energy we should be entitled to use. Where do they claim this power?
