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.
