The Cap and Trade bill has already been rushed through the house, and will come to the Senate when they are back in session in the fall.
An excerpt from a letter to me from U.S. Senator John Cornyn:
Several analyses show that Texas, as the nation’s leading energy producer and key manufacturing center, would be saddled with a disproportionate amount of the cost to implement a cap-and-trade program. In fact, the Texas Comptroller’s office notes that if H.R. 2454 was enacted, it could cost Texas families a total of $6.9 billion dollars and, in its first year of implementation, displace up to 277,000 Texas jobs.
This is how Obama and the democrats are taking care of us. They’re costing us a ton of money, and causing jobs to be lost on a massive scale. Whatever their reason for doing so, this is going to hurt, if it passes.
I’d personally appreciate it if you would all push your U.S. Senators to vote against this bill. I have contacted mine, as you can see.
