  • Steph, thanks so much for that. Once again there is lots of double-talk.

    "We are taxing 'big companies' not consumers. It won't affect the general public, no siree...."

    They downplay the impact with lies and funny-money accounting, and pretty soon the cost of everything goes up.

  • You might want to leave a link since it just came out.

    My opinion? Same song differnt verse. It sucks and America can't afford it. On top of that it will do NOTHING to help their climate change.

  • OMG, they change the name but it's still the same old crap. Just another way to waste taxpayer dollars.

  • Just a snippet....

    Today, Congress once again ignored what Americans want and introduced a new gasoline tax as part of a global warming bill that also contains a cap and trade energy tax on utilities. The section on the gas tax begins on p. 361.

    Introduced by Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT), this bill requires American oil companies to pay a fee to the government for their global warming emissions.

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who helped craft the gas tax, admitted the fee "will be passed on" to motorists in the form of higher gasoline prices.

    But Senators Kerry and Lieberman are offended that any American would dare call it a gas tax.

  • It's just a prettified version of Cap & Tax. They did a poll, and found out those words didn't make the American taxpayer feel all warm & fuzzy, so they changed the name. Surprise, surprise, surprise!
