The Obamessiah has some of the voters in Pennsylvania, America's coal-mining capital, bamboozled into thinking he'll raise taxes on others, but not on them. Well, it's kind of hard to pay income taxes when your President purposefully bankrupts your industry and kills your job. Here's what The One had to say to the S.F. Chronicle just 9 months ago, about America's continued use of coal as a fuel source.....
"Let me sort of describe my overall policy.
What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.
I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."
We are about to allow the media to install into the presidency, a man who still believes CO2 is a pollutant and that it is warming the Earth, despite a decade of proof to the contrary. Obama is willing to destroy America's coal industry, and tens of thousands of jobs in the process, on behalf of the totally imaginary hoax of global warming, using the idiotically conceived carbon-credit scheme.
McCain should be plastering the audio of this interview all over Pennsylvania for the next 48 hours.
