The Giant Power Grab

Environmental legislation is nothing more than a giant power grab. Get ready, because the latest cap-n-trade tax bill -- which has already passed the House -- will be coming before the Senate before too long. We've got to be ready to fight this one by cutting straight to the core of the real issue. Here's your tutorial:

Horner spent some time with local KC talk radio host Chris Stigall this week, too, and that interview is also worth a listen:

You can get Horner's book here.

Once again, this is an issue on which our government is governing against the will of the people:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 17% of adults believe most Americans would be willing to make major cutbacks in their lifestyle in order to help save the environment. Most (65%) say that’s not the case.
And yet, if cap-n-trade tax becomes the law of the land, remember what Obama himself said about the results:

A lot of those 'skyrocketing' prices are going to be the result of the bankrupted coal industry, which will be another result. Remember, the U.S. gets 70% of its energy from coal, and he is promising to bankrupt it. Show of hands of everyone who thinks that's a great idea...?

Now, call me crazy, but I'd say that the bankrupting of the industry responsible for 70% of the nation's energy, and intentionally skyrocketing energy prices is going to result in something of a major cutback. Wouldn't you agree? Thus, Obama is promising to deliver something that America doesn't want. Again. And there is no stretch of the imagination that would indicate anything positive will come of it.

Get ready to fight this, the third pillar of the radical Leftist plan to destroy America from the inside out. If they get this, it will be another massive power grab, and combined with what's already happened, one from which we may not be able to recover.

There's my two cents.
