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.

…and that’s with the MSM censoring the specifics of the bill. One can imagine how much more than 42% would disapprove of the bill if their were actual coverage of it.
Putting Sen Sanford’s private life on the front pages effectively buries the details of this bill and serves the administrations plan of “transparency”, i.e., presenting a bill that is invisible to the general public(and apparently to the Dems and 8 republicans who voted for it).
It has to take center stage for people to know how many more jobs will be lost, how many more companies will close or move to foreign soil and how much deeper the taxes will be for those that remain working or owning companies in the US.
Good time for Republicans to step forward, not only to criticize, but more important to provide an alternate plan or platform that will build the country.
I cannot believe anyone still believes Obama intends on doing anything that WOULD help the economy????
Sadly tho’ there are still some fools out there that think he’s going to fix it.
[...] many Dems fear that Cap & Trade will be yet another bill with no support from Republicans or the People. However, Obama does not seem to listen to “We the People,” will he listen to his own [...]
