Cap and Trade

After the Cap and Trade Bill passed the House of Representatives, Representative Jay Inslee proudly sent an email out to his constituents praising his own work. He took credit for helping to write most of the Cap and Trade Bill saying it was the milestone of his political career…. something that he’s the MOST proud of accomplishing as Representative. Now the Bill is coming to the US Senate with a new name but the same terrible contents and effects. Read this article and then decide if Inslee deserves to be re-elected. James Watkins is a far better candidate. If you’ve heard James speak, you know about his experience in Washington D.C. and in private business. He’s impressive, qualified and deserving of a chance to work toward a balanced federal budget (right now we have no federal budget). We deserve better than Inslee!

How is it that our own President stood shoulder to shoulder with Chavez in demonizing Honduras when they followed their Constitution and kicked out a guy who was trying to become a Chavez-like dictator?

I am going to repost one of her posts in particular because it is a fair warning about the path down which many of those in power would like to take us. And, in light of Obama’s guaranteed push for Cap-and-Tax tonight in his speech, this is highly relevant. In this post, Julia writes about how miserable life is when the government gets to shut off your water and fines you for using too much electricity.

And if you think that can’t happen here, then answer this question: why does Fannie Mae, the mortgage company, own patents on cap-and-trade technology? Why has the Obama administration spent the last few months fighting Freedom of Information Requests aimed at Fannie Mae and their finances, considering they are a root cause of the housing crisis, and we are on the hook for billions of dollars to bail them out?

What the ‘Cap and Trade’ Bill Means to Homeowners

Don’t want to be bothered with “Political stuff?”   If you own your home you really need to check this out. At the end of this post is a link to verify.  If the country thinks the housing market is depressed now, wait until everyone sees this. No one will be buying homes in the future.

 Beginning one year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won’t be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this “Cap & Trade” bill, passed by the House of Representatives. If it is also passed by the Senate, it will be the largest tax increase any of us has ever experienced. Read more »
