Skip to comments.You’ve Got to Be Kidding, Mr. President

I am addressing this post to my fellow citizens of MI-01, fellow activists across the country, and especially to Congressional Democrats and candidates currently serving in Congress.
The word is out; Mike Allen at Politico.com had the story yesterday. This administration is going to push the Senate to pass a cap-and-trade bill this summer. Then, with the same arrogance we have seen before from this administration, they are planning on passing a final bill during the lame-duck session of Congress that follows Novembers electionselections where the people will have spoken and expressed their will regarding the type of government they want, elections that will show incumbents that the people will no longer accept irresponsible government. The writing is on the wall for incumbents from both parties: either listen to the people and only pass legislation with their consent, or suffer the consequences in November.
This president is going to try to use the lame-duck session to achieve his agendatransformation of America into a big government juggernaut, in charge of every aspect of our lives. Passage of the cap-and-trade bill will be a blight and burden on this country. Instead of seeing economic recovery, we will sink into the morass that is Europe. Extreme green energy and climate change agendas can bankrupt nations. America does not want to go down this road; this a freight train that must be stopped.
We have to stop this administration from going forward with this plan and continuing its record of passing legislation against the will of the people through behind-closed-door tactics and political wheeling and dealing. Now is the time for everyone to stand up and say again, Enough is Enough!
I am setting up a Web site with a petition drive for all concerned Americans to urge the Democratic candidates to sign a pledge that says they will stand with you, the people, and not pass this cap-and-trade legislation in such an underhanded manner. This will be their opportunity to show the American people that they are truly on the side of the people, and not against them. If they do not sign this pledge and continue to pass bills against our will, then we must make it clear that the newly elected Congressional Activists who take office in January will work to repeal or refuse to fund these harmful economic monstrosities. We must do it with the health care bill, and if we have to we will do it with cap and trade. It is about time Washington understood that our activism is not going to stop. November will only be the beginning .
Join me and sign the petition at: Link to NoLameDuckTax.com. Express your concern as Americans and activists. Our government should be responsible and accountable, not arrogant and dismissive. Lets take it back.
I remain your fellow activist, who would like to serve the people of Michigans 1st District as their Congressional Representative. I will be an activist Congressman, standing with this district and our great country, in espousing; Enough is Enough!
If they do this and the Republican have won control of at least the House then they all need to be arrested and tried for treason.
Amen to that.
This really shouldn’t surprise anyone. Obama has stated that we need to be more like Europe. He will destroy this country unless we stop this idiot and remove him from office.
BO/BS is not President since he is not a natural born citizen per the requirement in Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution. He has no allegiance to the U.S. or the Constitution and consequently do whatever it takes to impose his marxist agenda on the American people.
Marxists don’t listen to petitions.
And then sent to Utah for punishment.
Mr. Prez is getting closer and closer to drop kicking his you know what to Kenya.
By the way watched Hannity last night. Lutz had a hollywood focus group on. By the end of the session my conclusion was, they are arrogant and what they all said was shallow and maked very little sense.
The one at the website (RS) does, however.
This doesn’t surprise me, but, it sure makes me angry. I just hope the new blood we get into office this fall has some real back bone. I think Dr. Dan does. You don’t come up the way he did and not have one.
While I don't think they have the votes to break a filibuster in the Senate, it's clear that if they can pass "health care reform" with Budget Reconciliation, they could certainly pass cap & trade the same exact way.
The Republicans, upon taking back the House in January, hopefully will have the stones to put repealing language in EVERY bill that comes up, until either Obama signs it, or until they shut down the government.
Oh dang, and I tried it before I posted :( Let me see if I can fix.
The lame duck period needs to be reduced or it should disallow new bill passages. Did the founding fathers not consider some corrupt congress in the future would try this trick?
Obama continues to push his agenda for centralized and absolute power, and he doesn’t seem to care what kind of America he presides over; destitute and polluted. I guess it’s better to rule in hell...
I’m not sure, but, it is a good question.
I think the man is mad, out of his mind power hungry.
Or worse. I seem to recall then Sen Obama waxing poetic about the superior "infrastructure" and other attributes of china when they had the 08 Olympic Games. I can't recall his exact wording, but it seemed at the time like a most admiring and complimentary description of them, and by implied comparison, the USA was inferior.
