EPA: Climate bill costs less than postage stamp
breitbart ^ | 6/15/10 | MATTHEW DALY

Posted on 06/15/2010 2:27:47 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says a climate and energy bill being pushed in the Senate would cost American households 22 to 40 cents a day, less than the cost of a postage stamp.

The Environmental Protection Agency said in a new analysis released Tuesday that a bill sponsored by Sens. John Kerry and Joe Lieberman would cost households an average of $79 to $146 per year.

I’m sick of rich liberal elites making laws that make life difficult for the ordinary people who pay their salaries.

And, of course, they would only tell us the truth. Where is Joe Wilson to scream at them “You lie.”

Once they sucker us into that, then it will be more and more each year.

Even if true (and I don’t believe it) nothing the government starts remains static. The cost will go up (and up and up until there is no more money like every other government program).

And the healthcare bill won’t cost you anything.
And you can keep your doctor.
And the stimulus bill will cap unemployment to 8%.

And we will all get a unicorn that poops skittles.

And you can take that prediction to the bank - has the government EVER underestimated the potential cost of something? These are the best and brightest. Look at how well it worked out with Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, etc.!!! What could possibly go wrong???

Just like HC being budget neutral when Sebillius held out a report for two weeks from the CBO showing it would cost a trillion and she keeps her job?

Pelosi has a $110,000 bar tab and stays employed?

Screw Lerch and Liebs.

I thought the point of cap’n’trade was supposed to be to have fees and credits large enough to change behavior. If the cost doesn’t hurt, it won’t work as designed.

Maybe they are planning to pass most of the cost on to business. I can only guess at that of course, based on the fact that they are the most Marxist business-hating regime in American history.

What absolute tripe! How do we see those numbers when fuel prices triple? Kerry is an f’ing moron and Liebermann, sadly is a leftist. Anyone who doesn’t at least suspect a 30 to 50 percent increase in the cost of living is trying to be ignorant.

It wouldn’t surprise me!

Liberals are not real original.

If anything this Colonial Penn Life Insurance is a TOTAL RIP-OFF. How insulting to believe this commerical is a “hit” with many and then pitch it to us!

Note to you well-heeled (at our expense) elitist wankers. For some of us who have bills and other expenses to pay, “a postage stamp per day” does add up to a significant amount of money. Thanks for plotting to deprive me of even more capital that I earned by my labour. The ripple effect of this will be like a VAT (food, clothing, durable goods, etc will all increase in price significantly).

OK, EPA, now figure out how much it will cost Americans to "drill, baby, drill" on an unprecedented scale that will allow us to be independent from other countries in oil production. Then, we will compare the costs, and decide what to do.

Yeah, right. Not from the Alinsky administration.

Just another socialist scheme to redistribute money from hard-working businesses and their employees (the ants) to the lazy, shiftless, welfare scamming who don’t work (the grasshoppers). November 2010 can’t come soon enough.

Maybe it's time for a compromise. Each day we pay the government $0.42 and they turn loose some prison lifers who run a gauntlet between a few thousand selected rate payers.

That'd be fair ~ maybe even add some Gitmo prisoners in the mix ~ kind of spice it up.

Now there are those who'd say this isn't fair, and isn't American but they don't know Mohawk traditions fur shur!

Yeah, right. Health Care Reform is free, too.

Actually, they might be right about the cost, but only if they are assuming modest incremental costs coupled with huge reductions in the American standard of living.
