Take a look – then vote yes on Prop 23, it will save California from Arnold and the Democrats global-warming insanity. Then cheer on the squishy Republicans in the US Senate to continue fighting against Cap and Trade.
Cap-And-Trade Could Cost American Families $1,761 A Year. “The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent. A previously unreleased analysis prepared by the U.S. Department of Treasury says the total in new taxes would be between $100 billion to $200 billion a year. At the upper end of the administration’s estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year.” (Declan McCullagh, “Obama Admin: Cap And Trade Could Cost Families $1,761 A Year,” CBSNews.com, 9/15/09)
In the worst economy since the 1930’s – Barbara Boxer wants to raise your taxes 15%, can you afford that?
Boxer’s Bill Would Have Led To “Job Losses Exceeding 2.5 Million.” “Should S. 1733 become law, Americans can expect the following to occur between enactment and the year 2035 (all figures are adjusted for inflation): Inflation-adjusted losses to gross domestic product (GDP) of $9.9 trillion; More than $4.6 trillion in higher energy taxes; Job losses exceeding 2.5 million for some years; Annual family-of-four energy costs rising by $1,000, including a gasoline price increase of more than $1.20 per gallon; Annual family-of-four energy costs plus increased cost of goods and services totaling more than $3,000; Average GDP loss per family of four above $4,500 per year; Family-of-four net worth dropping by more than $40,000; and The family of four’s share of the national debt rising by an additional $27,000.” (David Kreutzer, Ph.D., Karen Campbell, Ph.D., William Beach, Ben Lieberman and Nicolas Loris, “What Boxer-Kerry Will Cost the Economy,” 1/26/10)
Why does Barbara Boxer hate America? Have you ever wondered? She ripped on a Brigadir General in a committee hearing, voted no on everything military she could and now wants to annhilate our economy…
GDP To Take Hit Under Climate Legislation. “The hit to GDP is the real threat in this bill. The whole point of cap and trade is to hike the price of electricity and gas so that Americans will use less. These higher prices will show up not just in electricity bills or at the gas station but in every manufactured good, from food to cars. Consumers will cut back on spending, which in turn will cut back on production, which results in fewer jobs created or higher unemployment. Some companies will instead move their operations overseas, with the same result.” (“The Cap and Tax Fiction,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/26/09)
Here’s the irony – Boxer will attack Carly over HP moving jobs to foreign countries – yet she is trying to accomplish just that with the Cap and Trade bill she is obsessively trying to ramrod through congress.
Please, California – fire Barbara Boxer.
