BOEHNER ON SPEAKER PELOSI'S NATIONAL ENERGY TAX: "I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING THIS RIDICULOUS"
THE FREEDOM POST ^ | June 25, 2009 | TheCapitalist

Posted on 06/25/2009 7:11:52 PM PDT by TheFreedomPoster

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today released a new chart underscoring the bureaucratic nightmare that is Speaker Pelosi’s national energy tax. The chart highlights the slew of new government programs Democrats will create in order to take and redistribute trillions of dollars from family budgets and workers payrolls in the form of allowances – all overseen by a confusing web of government agencies.

BOEHNER: "I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING THIS RIDICULOUS"

I said the exact same thing after John Boehner got to keep his job after the last two election cycles.

She's from the land of the druggies. They do a lot of ridiculous things over there in that joint.

Like they say, "As California goes, so goes the nation". Adios America! California is dragging us down with them.

We need to defeat this horrible bill for the sake of America. Do these idiots no anything about competitive pricing? When you have 2 similar articles, one more expensive than the other, which will most buy? The least expensive of the 2 is what most will buy. So it goes to say who will purchase anything we produce? No one!!! Unless we are producing something no one else has, we will no longer be competitive.

I’ve seen something even more ridiculous: John Boner’s weak leadership in the face of Pelosi and the Democrats.
He keeps getting tricked by them, over and over.
He leads the GOP out of the chamber for the evening, and then Pelosi and the Democrats call a vote without the Republicans.

No one even bothers listening when you speak, John!
We really, really need Mike Pence as GOP House Leader.
Why doesn’t the Republican party get it?
We’re tired of ineffectual party ‘leaders’.

Many of us Californians don’t want to drag anybody down. The crooks out here in Sacramento are killing us.

As Dems Search for Votes to Pass This Costly Bureaucratic Nightmare, Speaker Pelosi Tells Former VP Gore to Stay Home 

Washington - House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today released a new chart underscoring the bureaucratic nightmare that is Speaker Pelosi’s national energy tax.  The chart highlights the slew of new government programs Democrats will create in order to take and redistribute trillions of dollars from family budgets and workers payrolls in the form of allowances – all overseen by a confusing web of government agencies. 

  

 

Make sense?  Not really.  In fact, in a news conference earlier today, Boehner called it “ridiculous”:

 

“If you look at this chart, this is how this process will work.  With the EPA being in the middle, look at all of these different agencies that are involved. This is the most elaborate thing that I have seen and you know, I have been here a while and I’ve seen some pretty crazy things, but I have never seen anything this ridiculous.”

 

The depiction of how Speaker Pelosi’s national energy tax will work is bad enough.  But its consequences for families and small businesses across the country are even worse.  The tax – which may come up for a House vote tomorrow – will be forced upon anyone who drives a car, buys an American-made product, or flips on a light switch.  As a result, it will drive up energy costs, send millions of jobs to countries like China and India who do not have national energy taxes of their own, and place an especially heavy burden on rural America.  Democratic leaders have been scrambling to round up votes for the legislation, and they initially called in former Vice President Gore to help.  But at the last minute, they told him to stay home, realizing that rural Democrats who are already in a difficult situation because of this painful vote would rather not be associated with the former Vice President and other left-swing special interests.

This explains the lameness of the GOP. The party is filled with weak leadership who just want to keep their jobs & stay in DC where they think they have the power. The party leadership needs a thorough cleaning from the Chair on down. Sweep out spineless.

Let the monster pass with no Republican votes and when the voters are mad as hell their electric rates went up 50% and the cost of everything else is increasing because of cap and trade make the Republican party pledge to repeal cap and trade immediately on gaining control of Congress.

"Inhofe, the Oklahoma senator credited the Founding Fathers, noting that the senate rules put in place are a difficult obstacle for the global warming activists in the federal government to overcome."

“It will pass in the House, in the Senate it will not pass,” Inhofe continued. “And her latest vote and she won’t admit this, but it’s 34 votes and it takes 60 votes in the Senate. Maybe the people who wrote our constitution knew what they were talking about."

Good night, FReepers. Sleep well.
