House Dem Leader: Force Cap-and-Tax! Save the Universe!

This guy understands the consequences, and doesn't give a rip.

Government policy should be crafted to raise the price of carbon-emitting energy sources so consumers are compelled to choose alternative energy, House Democratic Conference Chairman John Larson (D-Conn.) told on Thursday.

Larson agreed that such a policy would likely result in higher electricity prices for consumers but said this is needed to protect the environment from the possible “catastrophic results” of not implementing a pro-green energy policy

And to top it off, he has a messianic complex:

“I think the government should serve as an impetus to do so, because as I said at the outset, not doing anything -- the catastrophic results that can come from that – are what drives this issue,” ...“We ought to do it in a way that both enhances our economy and our economic opportunity and also preserves the universe and the earth,” said Larson

"Preserves the UNIVERSE"????

Evidently 'punch-drunk' is spreading.........

The pretense came off last week when Harry Reid said that C&T generated the same money as was needed for health care. This is only a way to increase taxes. The cry of global warming is only to get the sheeple to come along quietly.

The Vatican's kicking Burke upstairs to the home office doesn't seem to have muted this wild canon--I wonder what the Vatican's next step will be besides not making him a Cardinal again.
