Consumer Confidence Takes Unexpected Slide on Obama’s Watch … Drunken Sailor Spending and Taxes is Economies Undoing

Confidence in Obama dealing with the economy is becoming an issue. Stimulus plan was not only pork, it was a turkey. The honeymoon is over.

Consumer confidence falls unexpectedly in June. Unexpectedly? With all the deficit Chart_down2spending, with all the socialistic government control of banks and the car industry, with all the stimulus money borrowed against our grand children’s future. Should it really be unexpected when even the President’s approval ratings are going down? On top of it all, unemployment continues to rise, even though Obama’s admin said it would not go over 10%.

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when Obama pal, George Soros, says that borrowing costs pose a threat to economic recovery.

The consumer confidence index fell to 49.3 in June from 54.8 in May. Economists polled by Reuters had expected a healthier reading of 55.0 for the month.

Billionaire investor George Soros added to the cautionary tone, saying that rising borrowing costs posed a threat to any eventual economic recovery.

42% of Americans Say “Cap & Trade” Bill will Hurt the Economy … Thanks Obama

A special thanks to Barack Obama and the House Democrats and 8 Turncoat Republicans, taxing people in a recession for a scientific myth. There goes the economy.

42% of Americans believe that the recently passed Democratic tax known as “Cap & Trade” will hurt the US economy according to a recent Rasmussen poll. The 24% who are unsure probably have no idea what “cap & trade” really is or the damage that it will cause. Once they are informed the 42% will go even higher.

Americans have mixed feelings about the historic climate change bill that passed the House on Friday, but 42% say it will hurt the U.S. economy.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 19% believe the climate change bill passed by the House on Friday will help the economy. Fifteen percent (15%) say it will have no impact, and 24% are not sure.

The Weekly Standard makes a great point in that once Americans hear that Democrats and elitist liberals call those in opposition and simply stating their opinion as treasonous to the planet, the numbers will grow.

And this gets to the crux of why cap and trade may end up being such a tremendous boon to Republicans. Not only do the American people oppose it by a healthy margin, but they are having it foisted on them by elites who smugly deride their opposition as treason to planet earth.

FYI to the uninformed regarding “Cap and Trade,” according to a study by the Heritage Foundation, the legislation would cost the average family nearly $3,000 per household per year.

Unbelievable: Carol Browner, Energy Czar Questioned as to Whether She Read Cap & Trade Bill … Answer, No!

Criminal … Remember America, they work for “We the People”.

We prosecute Bernie Madoff for the fraud he perpetrated on unsuspecting investors, yet a government is supposed to go unchecked and allowed to partake in their own fraud on America called “cap & trade”.  They feel any question that actually questions them is not worthy of and answer and mean spirited.

Barack Obama’s Energy Czar, Carol Browner, appeared on Fox & Friend’s yesterday to discuss the “cap & trade” Obama energy tax on all Americans that recently passed the House by a narrow majority. One might assume that the Obama energy czar would have read the bill since after all she is the energy czar. However, you know what happens when you ASS-U-ME!

As reported by Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, after Fox’s Steve Doocy asks Browner whether she has read the entire “cap and Tax” bill, she gets defensive and declares that it is unfair that Doocy blindsided her. Blindsided for asking whether she read the bill that she was discussing? Are you joking? She was asked a simple question as to whether she read the bill and that is supposed to be a gotcha question? Sadly, no one read this bill in the House but saw fit to inflict it upon “WE THE PEOPLE”.

“I’ve read vast portions of it.”

STEVE DOOCY: “[I] know the bill is over 1,000 pages long. Have you have read it?”
CAROL BROWNER: “Oh, I’m very familiar with this bill.”
DOOCY: “Have you have read it?”
BROWNER: “We have obviously been watching this for a very long time. I am very …”
DOOCY: “I’m sure you’ve got an idea of it, but you have read it?”
BROWNER: “I’ve read major portions of it, absolutely.”
DOOCY: “So the answer no you haven’t read it. But you’ve read a big chunk of it.”
BROWNER: “No, no, no that’s not fair. That’s absolutely not fair.”

So let’s get this correct. An Obama mouth piece goes on national TV to shill and spin to the American people that “cap & trade” is not a tax on all American’s and that it will not greatly increase all Americans energy bills, yet energy czar Carol Browner finds it unfair for her to be asked whether she read the damn pile of sh#t in the first place?

How privileged does the Obama White House think they are that they do not have to answer to “We the People”?
