"Climate Change" Chatter Is a Loser

New polling data, different flapjaw from Obama.

Read the President's remarks Friday night after the House passed the measure most Capitol Hill staff and press referred to as the Waxman-Markey climate bill. You'll notice some words that the President never speaks: "climate," "warming," "greenhouse," "carbon," "cap-and-trade," or "emissions."

The charts at this link tell the story.

When asked in 2009 "how much more would you pay in utility bills to combat climate change?" FIFTY-EIGHT percent of respondents said "Zero."

Contrast that to the 2007 survey, in which only 35% had that response...

Put another way, in 2007, 57% of the respondents would pay something to offset climate change; by 2009, that had diminished to 35%.

Let's see if the Senate will bait the public into a revolution like Pelosi's House attempted to do.

It just verifies what many of us knew. The One was LYING when he said that those making less than 250,000 wouldn't see there taxes go up "One dime". Then again, he was right. They're going up a hell of a lot more than one dime. Typical politician. Liar. Claimjs to be for the little guy as he rips more of our hard earned $$ from us.

Obama claimed that the average American would not bear the brunt of this historic tax-increase: he stated that instead "“It is paid for by the polluters who currently emit dangerous carbon emissions.”

Just compare this outrageous falsehood to Ronald Reagans' famous quote:

"The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us.

Business doesn’t pay taxes, and who better than business to make this message known? Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

And after the way the rammed this through the House with little debate, without legislators even reading it... and while quarantining the GOP from any meaningful input whatsoever, any foolhardy individuals who still believe Obama's threadbare "bipartisanship" spiel ought to have their head examined.
