Cap AND Trade INFOSubmitted by BMJ1936 on Mon, 07/06/2009 - 17:05
This is rather long but it has all the info you'll need to take action.
A new report has just been released indicating that 40 states will seeelectric bills rise under the new cap-and-trade Carbon Tax scheme.
Just so happens that liberal strongholds like California, New York,
Connecticut and Washington State will actually see their prices
decline... while EVERY RED STATE FROM THE 2008 ELECTION except two willsee energy prices increase or skyrocket!
Why are some states (mostly blue states) paying less while other states(historically red states) are getting hammered? Because the newcap-and-trade carbon tax has been totally politicized!
Liberal politicians and bureaucrats are giving themselves the power to"allocate" the carbon allowances to support their political agenda!
According to the New York Times, a similar cap-and-trade "allocations"system failed miserably in Europe, creating a "lobbying free-for-all thatled politicians to dole out favors to various industries" while creating"little noticeable benefit to the climate" and generating a"multibillion-dollar windfall" even for favored polluters!
VOTE THIS WEEK TO IMPOSE ENERGY TAX!

The letter I'm faxing:
I am disappointed that Speaker Pelosi is pressing for a floor vote thisweek on the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax.
I oppose the $3,100 Per Family cap-and-trade Carbon Tax. This is anoutrageous power grab by the federal government that will greatly expandgovernment control and increase energy costs for my family.
This system of "allocations" has failed in Europe and will politicize
America’s energy policy. Especially in these difficult economic times, Congress must not pass this tax on the American people!
I strongly urge you NOT to pass the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax. YOUR votewill be the indicator to vote for your reelection on not to.
