In very much the same way the Democrats in Congress rushed the stimulus bill through, they now want to vote on the 1,201 page (previously 946 page) monstrosity: The Waxman-Markey Global Warming Bill. Now wait just a minute here! Just a few months ago, they proceeded to pass the last bill in undue haste.
There was no time to think about it. They just pushed it through before we even knew anything about it. First of all, this bill will have virtually no impact on climate whatsoever. This was stated from the Heritage Foundation, when they sited the analysis of the Congressional Budget Office.
This bill in the long run will cost this country millions of jobs, trillions of lost income, a larger national debt, and higher energy prices. Prices that are expected to be 50 to 90 percent higher than they are now. Not wanting to make the same mistake as last time, the Dems hired some speedreaders to read through this massive bill.
Now it doesn’t matter whether they have these speedreaders or not. They will still want to pass the bill anyway. What Congress needs to do is allow us to see a few of the important items in the bill so we can see how it will affect us. All this looks like to me is just another useless bill. Why would you pass a climate bill if it does NOTHING to change the climate? All I see it as is just another way to tax us and destroy even more of the jobs that still remain in this country.
I have a bad feeling that this is not the last of the outrageous legislation that the liberal run congress will be passing. Not by a long shot. There might be hope in 2010. Maybe.
