VIDEOS: More on "Cap and Trade" The Biggest Tax Increase in America's History

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

The House of Representatives narrowly passed the American Clean Air and Security Act (HR 2454) last Friday. Eight Republicans voted yes on the bill, otherwise, it would have narrowly failed.

The good news is that forty Democrats voted NO on the bill, and it still has to be voted on in the Senate, which is expected to be a tough fight. We will certainly remember those Democrats and the eight Republicans leading up to the November 2010 elections.

HR 2454 would have been more appropriately named "Cap and Tax and Kill and Trade", because it will tax us all on our energy use, kill jobs and trade away many of our freedoms and property rights. If passed, this bill would be one of the largest expansions of federal government since the IRS grew into the intrusive bureaucracy it is today.

And just as no member of Congress read the so-called "stimulus bill", no member of Congress read this 1000-plus page legislation either. In fact, the last 300 page amendment was not shown to Members until 3a.m. the day the vote was taken.

This is irresponsible and insulting to the American people.

This is why we must continue to call, write and email our Senators to help the bill to "narrowly fail" when the Senate vote is taken. Even though the Senate's version of the bill has not been written yet, I am urging you to contact your Senators today and ask them to vote NO on any version of the Cap and Trade bill (also referred to as the American Clean Air and Security Act).
