Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the economy

Updated on October 1, 2009

Just when you thought it was safe to go back out in the economy Senators Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) are about to re-release the old Cap and Trade Bill under a new name. Because of the successful campaign against this horrendous attempt to cripple this nation’s economy these two charlatans figure they can pull the old-switch-er-roo and re-release this same legislation under a new name the Pollution Reduction Bill! What’s the old saying a Rose by any other name, well in this case it’s not the smell of a rose we’re comparing here but the smell of “Waste”!

That’s right, while their colleagues Baucus in the Senate and Pelosi in the House are busy destroying the health care system of the country and their President runs around apologizing for America while disarming us, they think they can pull the “Statue of Liberty” play and sneak a touchdown across thus destroying what’s left of our economy in the process. Cap and Trade by any other name still wreaks the same! You Cap America’s ability to compete while Trading all our jobs overseas!

The bill will be pushed through Boxer's Environment and Public Works Committee. This way it will be touted by the environmentalist as legislation designed to protect the planet for the next century. With this new targeted approach the bill will be even more damaging to America’s economy by establishing more aggressive emissions targets for 2020 at the 20 percent limit. This will cripple American heavy industry and severely hamper their ability to compete since no such standards will be imposed on their foreign competitors!

Kerry sought to change the vernacular surrounding the climate bill and sell its concepts more broadly, insisting it is not a "cap and trade" proposal but a "pollution reduction" bill. "I don't know what 'cap and trade' means. I don't think the average American does". That’s where you’re wrong Senator, the average American understands completely what it’s all about and that’s why there is such an uproar over this, we know what it will do to this already anemic economy! No matter the semantic games the Liberal Democrats engage in or the extent to which they wish to hide the truth from the American people, cap and trade will mean more job losses, more pain at the pump, and higher food and electricity prices for consumers!

So remember, just like in the movie Jaws, when it comes to the will of the Liberal Democrats to succeed in pushing through their agenda, it’s never safe to go back into the water or in this case the economy. That’s why unemployment continues to rise towards Jimmy Carter era record levels and business, both large and small, refuse to expand or continue to explore ways to relocate overseas; they know what this band of Merry Socialists have in store for them! Their cheer from the House and Senate floor continues to ring out without equivocation; From Each According to His Ability to Each According to His Need!

      Subterfuge and Obfuscation, that’s their game plan so as to keep you in the dark while they march steadily towards Socialism!

      Click on my earlier Hub "America’s obsession with Pop Culture Icons Provides Liberal Democrats with Perfect Subterfuge". I go into great detail about Cap and Trade in that one.

      Thanks for the fan mail

      Wow Patriot - I didn't know about this, but it's typical. If they pass it, do you know when it's set to go into effect? The healthcare bill won't take effect until 2013, which is odd. So I was just wondering if this had a similar date.

      Frankly I think their goal is to destroy America in the name of their "New World Order". Yeah I know, I sound like a conspiracy theorist. But hey, it's not paranoia if they're really after you. And from the evidence in front of us with that pack of rabid dogs on the hill, I don't think I'm that far off.

      Very interesting hub - thanks :)

      You nailed it; it's all about political power! As far as the desired temperature according to the Environmentalists it would be low enough so as not to be able to sustain human life!

      It's not about saving the ecology or stopping global warming. It's all about political power and raising revenue.

      As I always say: "What is the temperature of the Earth supposed to be?"

      When someone can tell me that, I'll listen to the Global Warming Alarmists.

      These clowns just try and destroy all that makes this Country great all for the sake of protecting the environment. The earth is just fine, the earth will be just fine, even after they tax us out of existence! The new endangered species is the entrepreneur!

      Gosh, can they jam pack the system any more than it already is? Crap & trade is going to be interesting to write about, having to explain it in simple words so that the masses will understand. Keep Hubbing!
