Skip to comments.House Democrats pass bill to raise taxes on gas
Posted on 10/03/2010 6:04:50 PM PDT by opentalk
H.R. 3534, a bill to give our land away to the U.N., passed by a narrow margin. On July 30, 2010, 207 Democrats and two Republicans voted in favor of the bill, and 39 Democrats and 154 Republicans voted against it.
Among many things, this bill exemplifies that bipartisan support in Among Congress only exists with the Republicans. The other news is that it raises fuel taxes an estimated 5 cents per gallon on gasoline and diesel.

Great, a damn tax hike on fuel...during a recession.
Great timing, idiots. They kick us when we’re down and they expect votes.
(didn’t see, who were the two RINO traitors that voted for this?)
Did Canada give its land away?
Its too late; itll just have to be stopped in the Senate, Tom, the young male answering the phone in U.S. Rep. John Boehners (R-Ohio)Washington D.C. office, said about HR 3534 (CLEAR Act). This is the globalist bill designed to give away our land, oceans, adjacent land masses and Great Lakes to an international body, and makes us pay $900 million per year until 2040.
Truth is, HR 3534 could have been stopped in the House and wasnt. Why? Because 21 absent Republicans chose not to show up for this critical vote, while another REP just voted Present: U.S. Rep. Gary Miller (CA-42). This legislation was so egregious; more than a handful of Democrats voted nay which makes the Republicans absence in the House chamber for the vote even more questionable. Be reminded that 193 + 17 absent votes would have killed the bill.
The Consolidated Land, Energy, Aquatic Restoration Act of 2009 (aka: CLEAR Act, HR 3534) gives away ownership of Americas oceans to the United Nations, and sectors America into nine geographic areas. This bill possesses a cap and trade/climate change component as well.
How much more of this are we going to have to put up with???????????????
And just because the Republicans will have the House next year, that doesn’t necessarily mean the Obama agenda is over. :(:(:(:(:(
Canada Free Press is one of the best web site’s on the Internet. They do a great job that the USA news media does not do.
The American public are sheep brainwashed by TV. They gave their liberty away for a TV clicker. TV in 30 minutes can destroy any Republican. Fools who watch TV enable this.
People need to understand that we can’t elect republicans and roll over and go back to sleep.
We’ll have to stand over them with a whip and not be afraid to use it liberally.
Isn’t this Treason???
Please, any Repub congressmen or staffers who are reading this — PLEASE —make an issue of this gas tax increase. Don’t sit on your damn hands like you did when the health care takeover included a new tax on house sales. This time, raise holy h*ll.
And don’t make the excuse that the mainstream media won’t carry your protests. In the day and age of the Internet, talk radio, and Fox News, you can make this gas tax a major issue. Perhaps even the issue that puts the final nail in the Dems’ coffins this coming Nov.
DO NOT SIT ON THIS ONE. You let us down by not making an issue of the house tax, don’t do the same on the gas tax.

Surely, Obama won't sign such a bill. He swore that for those making less than
$250,000 $200,000 a year, our taxes would not increase.
These traitors should be flogged for what they’re doing to this country!
Ask the people in Romania and they’ll tell you, sometimes Revolutions happen very, very quickly! It just depends of how much the civilians and military decide to take before they say enough!
Thanks Congress, another job well done. /sarc
And they wonder why they’re going to get booted in November?
“People need to understand that we cant elect republicans and roll over and go back to sleep.”
I never intend to elect another republican as long as I breath. I will always vote for the most conservative candidate on the ballot. I don’t care what letter is next to his name.
I will never again give a dime to the RNC or any other national party, even if it is a national Tea party (which I don’t believe should ever be organized). I will only support those candidates which are conservative. I don’t care if you are an incumbent, I will check your voting record. I don’t care if you are new to the party, I will research your positions.
I think many of us feel the same way. Just because you have that R next to your name, doesn’t mean you have my vote.
November can’t get here soon enough. The massive damage is taking place so fast that it will take generations to get out of this mess.
The Republican National Senate Committee called today - I told them hell no.
I’ll give to the individual candidates, but not to the National-level, ever again.
Well now, isn’t that just great? I told Blunt’s campaign early on not to call me again because he had already been in D.C. & hadn’t fought hard enough for us & now I read this. Guess I better ask him if he plans to show up & vote against it as a senator. What a choice, Blunt or Carnahan. Well, of course, it will be Blunt, but I’ll be holding my nose.
