Lindsey, Americans don’t want it!
It’s back, the Kerry-Lieberman-Graham climate-change bill.
Prancing to the beat of his own drum, Graham said just yesterday “At $4 per gallon everybody is tripping over themselves to find an energy policy.” Really, last we checked the headlines as we tend to do DAILY, they were all about assisting the economy and job creation and nothing about a climate-change bill that would negatively impact those initiatives.
The Washington Times wrote in April of 2010 “The ostensible purpose of the Kerry-Lieberman-Graham bill is to cut emissions of so-called greenhouse gases to clean the air, but the only likely outcome would be a reduction in the prosperity of the nation.
A new poll released by American Solutions, a grass-roots organization advocating more homegrown energy, last week revealed that 71 percent of Americans oppose the higher gas taxes that the climate-change bill would impose. Another 84 percent said they have very little confidence that the fuel tax would result in lower greenhouse gas emissions.
If these numbers aren’t enough to make members of Congress nervous, the poll also found that 64 percent of respondents are less likely to vote for a congressional candidate who backs a climate-change gas tax. At a projected cost of trillions of dollars, it’s easy to understand why Americans don’t want it, especially during the worst economy in generations.”
Lindsey Graham is proof positive that many of our elected officials at best, simply do not understand core-function governance, and at worst are either corrupt, insane or possibly both.
