What does Republican Minority House Leader John Boehner think of “Cap & Trade” … or is it crap & trade? John Boehner called the climate “cap & trade” bill “a pile of $hit”. Boehner know his crap, that is for certain. Weasel Zippers reminds us that Boehner is the same individual who called the stimulus bill what it really is, a “crap sandwich”….. He was correct once before.
Weird Science or Global Waring Junk Science … Same doodoo
Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday.
When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, “Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of s–t.”
Here is a reminder of the 8 Republican turncoats who need to be voted out of office in 2010.
It is not just Republicans that are calling “cap & trade” a tax, interestingly enough, Barack Obama supporter Warren Buffet says it is nothing more than a HUGE tax. Warren Buffet states that a tax on energy will be passed through to the customer. “It’s a tax like anything else” and will be passed on through to the customer … hint, that would be to “We the People”.
But you know the Republicans are saying it’s going to cost Americans jobs, going to send jobs overseas. And most important, they say it is a huge tax. And on that they have some backup from one of the president’s supporters, Warren Buffett. I guess to Obama supporters, Buffet does not know what he is talking about?
WARREN BUFFETT, CEO, BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY: I think if you get into the way it was written, it’s a huge tax and there’s no sense calling it anything else. I mean, it is a tax. So it — and it’s a fairly regressive tax.
Ace of Spades provides the following Obama mouth piece David Axelrod lie:
In same, David Axelrod lies about how this increase does not affect the poor. Because they’ll pay less for energy or some nonsense, dissembling and ignoring the fact that we all pay x for a kilowatt and y for a gallon, promising they’ll get help with their energy bill.
The White House, House Democrats and moonbats live in a fairy tale world. They can claim all they want that this, like all taxes that Obama favors, are job creators. It is a tax and nothing more. Is suddenly Warren Buffet wrong? Hardly. If wind and solar were such lucrative and important to develop, private industry would have done it already. The truth of the matter is that both are fairy tale green follies. Even if one believed, which I do not, that man is the cause of global warming … how does one pass what is an obvious tax on all Americans during a recession?
The White House and congressional Democrats argued the bill would create millions of “green jobs” as the nation shifts to greater reliance on renewable energy sources such as wind and solar and development of more fuel-efficient vehicles — and away from use of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal.
It will “make our nation the world leader on clean energy jobs and technology,” declared Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., who negotiated deals with dozens of lawmakers in recent weeks to broaden the bill’s support.
