Obama said: “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” (January 2008).
He’s right. Call your senators now and tell them to vote against the Cap and Trade bill!
He also, repeatedly and vigorously, said there would be “no new taxes on anybody making less then $250,000 a year.” I guess that depends on what you mean by the word “tax”, right?
While I’m on the subject, you should pay close attention to how Obama and the Democrats plan to fund their universal health care program. One way or the other, it will have to be a new tax. The only question is, which direction will the knife come from?
