“The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009”
"Chairman Henry A. Waxman of the Energy and Commerce Committee and Chairman Edward J. Markey of the Energy and Environment Subcommittee announced that the Energy and Commerce Committee will hold four days of legislative hearings on the discussion draft of 'The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.' "
That's the euphemistic name for the so-called "Cap & Trade" legislation. This is the legislation which candidate Obama said would "necessarily cause electric rates to skyrocket", and "bankrupt the coal industry".
Anyone who's concerned about high taxes should be concerned about this legislation. It will do exactly what candidate Obama promised, as well as place a huge part of the American economy under the control of the Federal government, apparently all to make Al Gore happy.
