Lies, lies, and more lies. President Obama and his cohorts in Congress are telling us that Cap and Trade will create jobs, when in fact, it will do the opposite. Somebody needs to hold these people accountable for their lies.
Yes, the Cap and Trade bill has been shelved, for now. But, it will be back, and we need to be prepared to fight this horrid piece of legislation, if for no other reason that we cannot afford it, especially in hard economic times.
Read the truth about Cap and Trade and its effect on jobs from the Patriot Room:
Cap and trade job killer
“First it was going to put the coal plants out of business. Killing jobs. Then it was going to stunt house sales. Now it seems the grand promise of all those ‘green jobs’ from the cap and trade legislation just won't happen either.
From the Detroit News:
‘House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says her advocacy for cap-and-trade is all about "jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs." But there's no evidence that employment has grown anywhere in the world because of energy mandates such as cap-and-trade.
A study released in March by four professors hosted by the University of Illinois casts a great deal of doubt about green job creation.
The academics found claims of green jobs to be unsubstantiated or overstated, and that energy mandates will likely kill more jobs in other industries than they create.’
The CBO is also fudging quite a bit about the amount the cost of this legislation will cost the average person.
‘There's also considerable disagreement about the cost of the cap-and-trade bill. The Congressional Budget Office estimates it to be a mere $175 a household. But the conservative Heritage Foundation pegs it at $3,000 per household, which seems more realistic considering the impact on energy and fuel prices.’
According to the professors, this bill would ‘lead to restructuring and possibly impoverishing our society.’ But do you think those in Congress care? Probably not.”
