HR 2454 Cap and Trade Update

Posted By Todd On May 21, 2009 @ 2:40 pm In Issues | No Comments

I have been following the progress of the Cap and Trade legislation all day. It seems that many congressional offices are being flooded with phone calls against this bill. Unfortunately, the Democrats in the House have taken some unprecedented steps to get this legislation passed by tomorrow. Below is a copy of a letter that I received about the current status of this bill.

Henry Waxman is still standing by his pledge to pass the cap
and trade Carbon Tax by end of day TODAY and the Democrats
are so desperate that they’ve added a new twist..

The Wall Street Journal reports that — due to the possibility
that Republicans will require a formal reading of the 1,000-
page bill to slow its progress — Democrats have a speed-reader
standing by.

That’s right… the Democrats are so desperate to fast-track
this huge carbon tax bill that they are ready to employ a
speed-reader!

And Dems even rejected an amendment that would halt the
cap and trade tax if unemployment rose to 15% or gasoline
reached $5/gallon!

+ + Talking Points

1. I am disappointed that Rep. Waxman is rushing the 1,000-page
cap-and-trade Carbon Tax through the Energy and Commerce
Committee this week.

2. This bill deserves full deliberation and should not be rushed.

3. I oppose the cap-and-trade Carbon Tax. This is an outrageous
power grab by the federal government that will greatly expand
government control and increase my taxes.

4. Especially in these difficult economic times, Congress must
not pass this tax on the American people!
