Even while gas prices continue to go up and recent turmoil in Libya and the Middle East further threaten America's energy independence, the Obama Administration's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) keeps pursuing a policy agenda that will only make matters worse.
Specifically, the EPA is trying to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases and essentially enact a backdoor cap and trade scheme.
Congress never intended the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases and doing so threatens to trigger new energy taxes, greatly slow America's still-recovering economy, and send more jobs overseas to China, India, and other countries.
Fortunately, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and Representative Fred Upton (R, MI-6) have introduced "The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011" (S. 482 in the Senate & H.R. 910 in the House) that would completely strip the EPA of its ability to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases, effectively stopping Obama's back door cap and trade strategy dead in its tracks.
I urge you to cosponsor and work to ensure passage of this important legislation.

Obama has made several concessions recently like opening up coastal areas to drilling to get support for his foolish climate change agenda. He's been using executive order to by pass congress as well. Cap and trade however its enacted is nothing but an ineffective "solution" to what is a questionable "problem" and its another way of shifting wealth from the US to 3rd world nations. Its designed for corruption and for enriching friends of this administration.
The problem is only questionable to people who don't think. Every single major scientific organization has validated the claim. Who disputes it? The same handful of "scientists" that the conservatives used for tobacco, acid rain, coal, etc. They are THE SAME GUYS! What a joke.
By the way - your entire claim is ridiculous. SPAM
If a website has freedom in its title got to figure it is shill organization for
some rich to scheme the poor.
