(Obama's) Backdoor Energy Tax

Pollution Control: From cars to coal mines, the imposition of economy-killing restrictions is under way. Are the new EPA regulations on auto emissions the precursor to regulating carbon dioxide by executive order?

In announcing the Environmental Protection Agency's first regulations on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from cars, Administrator Lisa Jackson has promised they won't be the last such rules stemming from the EPA's "endangerment finding" that carbon dioxide, six pounds of which every human being exhales every day, is a dangerous pollutant.

"These are the first regulations that cover greenhouse gas emissions in the United States," Jackson told reporters in a conference call last Thursday. She underscored the fact that additional regulations would be forthcoming since "the Clean Air Act talks about additional regulation needed once greenhouse gas pollution is acknowledged to be exactly that."

a proposed 70% cut in carbon dioxide emissions will cause gasoline prices to rise 77% above baseline projections, kill more than 3 million jobs and reduce average household income by more than $4,000 each and every year.

The American people are only going to get what they voted for- and what they might vote for again. They are stuck on stupid.

Not long before they start killing people to limit CO2 production. No joke. Some liberals are already doing it.

Meanwhile, one half the country will share the price for the stupidity of the other half. Why do we even bother anymore?

The Supreme Court has already said they can do this.

Pay your taxes and have a nice day.

.... six pounds of which every human being exhales every day, is a dangerous pollutant.

I’m guessing that BO and the rest of his administration are about double that. Duck tape would cure that.

the power to tax is the power to destroy. Obama pledged to fundamentally transorm America. This is how he intends to do it.

All employees of EPA and Democrat federal employees should immediately cut back their personal exhalations by 50%. This would require them to stay home and achieve a comatose state to slow their metabolism.

Without any doubt. The question is, how long can or will this nation tolerate his “transformation” (read: destruction) of American freedom, its laws, its soverignty and its economy and strength???

Obama's gov't is also mandating higher fuel economy numbers for all cars sold in the USA. MPG numbers are posted on the gov't web site fueleconomy.gov.

Automotive pollution testing is under the control of the EPA, another gov't organization.

By the way, that's the same gov't that bought two car companies. Anyone see an opportunity for fraud here? No conflict of interest at all...
