If cap & trade passes, will the families on food stamps still be receiving enough to buy a month's worth of groceries after factoring the price increases that will hit at the farm, wholesale, distribution and retail levels?

"For example, the combination of better building codes, more efficient appliances and building retrofits could save approximately $750 per household by 2020 and $3,900 per household by 2030."
If you can AFFORD new appliances and building retrofits. Do you have any IDEA how much it COSTS to retrofit a 100 yr old house? I DO, because I've rebuilt one. You have an extra $150,000+ to upgrade electrical, windows, insulation, etc.? Add in new appliances, plumbing, etc., plus interest on the money you will have to borrow. How long will it take to recoup THOSE costs, IF you can afford them?
