So...congress just passed a bill they call 'Cap and Trade.' It's the biggest tax increase passed in the history of the world. No exaggeration.
They will tax energy sources, so that we will all pay higher amounts to heat and cool our homes. Factories and businesses will do the same. They will then pass that cost onto us, so that our food, clothing, and the other things we purchase will cost more.
Which means we will buy less.
Which means the economy will continue to decline.
Which means even more people will lose their jobs.
Why this makes sense to congress, is a mystery to me.
