Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” —Ronald Reagan
Every one with at least a high school education knows that to stay alive we humans must inhale and exhale air to stay alive. When we exhale we expel CO2, because if it builds up in our lungs we will fall into unconsciousness!
Well, if Obama is elected President we may have to regulate our breathing patterns! Just this month, one of Obama's chosen advisers, Jason Grumet, gave an interview for the press,during which he stated that when Obama is elected he will mandate the curbing of CO2 emissions. The following is an excerpt from today's edition of The New Media Journal.
" Barack Obama will classify carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant that can be regulated should he win the presidential election on Nov. 4. This will open the way for new rules on greenhouse gas emissions. The Democratic senator from Illinois will tell the Environmental Protection Agency that it may use the 1990 Clean Air Act to set emissions limits on power plants and manufacturers, his energy adviser, Jason Grumet, said in an interview. President George W. Bush declined to curb CO2 emissions under the law even after the Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that the government may do so. If elected, Obama would be the first president to group emissions blamed for global warming into a category of pollutants that includes lead and carbon monoxide".
Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, has not said how he would treat CO2 under the act. Obama "would initiate those rulemakings, Grumet said in an Oct. 6 interview in Boston. "He's not going to insert political judgments to interrupt the recommendations of the scientific efforts.
Placing heat-trapping pollutants in the same category as ozone may lead to caps on power-plant emissions and force utilities to use the most expensive systems to curb pollution. The move may halt construction plans on as many as half of the 130 proposed new US coal plants.This would raise the cost to the consumer an exorbitant amount, so not only will Obama tax the middle class to support his SPREAD The WEALTH, but the cost of heating our homes will sky rocket!
This Socialist and his Communist thinking backers must be defeated at the polls if we hope to maintain our quality of life and freedoms! VOTE McCAIN And PALIN, Please!
