Lisa Jackson, the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, is threatening Congress to impose cap and trade legislation on the American public. If Congress choses to listen to its constituents, and decides not to adopt a "cap and trade" law, Ms. Jackson will impose "command and control" regulations on the American economy. As Ms. Jackson says in her own words:
"If you don't pass this legislation, then . . . the EPA is going to have to regulate in this area," the official said. "And it is not going to be able to regulate on a market-based way, so it's going to have to regulate in a command-and-control way, which will probably generate even more uncertainty."
Who does Ms. Jackson intend to command? The American public -- especially when Americans are exchanging value for value -- in other words, economic transactions. Who is Lisa Jackson, anyway? She is an unelected technocrat that most voters have never heard of of. But she wants dictatorial powers over the American public. She is desperate because Congress, which must answer to the American people from time to time, is starting to balk at the outrageous costs and dubious science associated with the climate change hoax. Tell your Representative that you do not want to give in to threats by a power hungry bureaucrat like Lisa Jackson.
