What The Democrat/Socialist Congress Is Doing To You
Passage of the destructive Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill will cause huge cost increases to all of our manufacturing industries, which will be passed on to us as consumers. This air-head “green” legislation amounts to imposition of the largest tax increase in our history, as well as the permanent loss of millions of productive jobs.
Among other things, it guarantees accelerated exporting of manufacturing jobs to China, India, and other Asian nations. Spain’s decisively negative experience shows that creation of “green” jobs means only that government will grow ever larger, ever more intrusive, and ever more tyrannical.
