This bill may be the largest tax increase in American history

Thompson 'Outraged' By Passage of Cap and Trade in the House

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Representative Glenn `GT’ Thompson, R-Howard, today voted a resounding “No” on H.R. 2454, the so-called “American Clean Energy and Security Act,” which he calls the “Cap and Tax” bill because of its huge taxes on all carbon-based fuels. The measure passed by a close vote of 219 to 212, with 44 Democrats voting no.

“Make no mistake, the goal of this measure is to make carbon-based fuels –natural gas, oil and coal—so expensive that we won’t be able to use them. Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels is a worthy goal, but not when we are in an economic downturn and our carbon-based fuels make up 85 percent of what we use to power this country,” said Thompson.

And why is it that the Republicans always say no to whatever the Democrats try to do....yet they NEVER have any alternative plan?? If we do not get this bill passed, our planet won't be around long enough to worry about it. Up to this point, no one has done anything, so we have to do something!

This will place wind turbines on every available ridge top in the country. It will cause massive transmission lines from every area. It will destroy the beauty this country now has. It will triple our utility bills. YES, TRIPLE. It will do nothing to curb our need for coal burning power plants because "when the wind don't blow the power don't flow" and there is no tecnology that can change that.
Net result in a nut shell:
1. Massive loss of jobs because of unpayable electric bills by the small business.
2. Complete destruction of our mountain ridges.
3. Huge increases in utility bills for EVERYONE.
4. No shut down of any carbon burning power plant neting in 0 carbon emission savings!!
5. begainning of a complete colapse of the economic structure of this counrty.

When campaining Obama said: " We live in the greatest country in the world, come with me while I change it"!

Enjoy your change, people. Enjoy your change!!

Oh be quiet and take it like the rest of us have been for sometime. You like to complain on here but never stand up for yourself. I figure the cheapest place for an american to live would be in jail.

This is absolutely terrible. People need to start paying attention to what these idiots are doing down in DC NOW!!! I have a solution but it ain't appropriate for this type of media.

Just want to thank all that voted for Obama. This is the beginning of the end for America as we know her.

Time for accountability...we deserve to see the names of each and every one that voted "for" this piece of crap legislation!

Admirable goal in this bill. Not sure if this is the way to go about it but we've been ignoring our gluttonous habits for about 35 years now and politicians never have the will to address it because they would have to offend their big contributors (Pa. District 10) or risk defeat in the next election because voters don't want to hear the bad news. We Americans are slobs when it comes to consuming energy and fouling the planet. If you need a symbol of this, look around you: Hummers, Roundup, and the list goes on.
Eat, drink and be merry.
Leave all these problems (and the massive debt we are amassing) to the next generations.
After all, those of us who are 10 or older will be dead before the real days of reckoning.
Thanks Glenn for your deep concern for the future and our Mother Earth -- not!
