Obama“very clear about putting a price on carbon" Everyone must pay!
politico ^ | 6/29/2010 | p

Posted on 06/29/2010 10:23:59 AM PDT by milwguy

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said after meeting with President Obama and other senators on Tuesday that he is ready to “scale back” the reach of energy legislation to get Republican support.

“We believe we have compromised significantly, but we are prepared to compromise further,” he told reporters outside the White House. “If Republicans can step forward, we can find a place of compromise.”

Kerry said that in the meeting with nearly two dozen senators of both parties, Obama was “very clear about putting a price on carbon” and curbing greenhouse gases. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Obama made an “effective argument that polluters should pay.”

King Barry proclaims all carbon polluters should pay. Since humans emit a couple of pounds of carbon each day merely by breathing, expect President Dipstick to have the IRS send you a bill for living.

The good news is once you die, you will be exempt from the carbon tax, and if you agree to be planted 'au natural' in the ground with trees planted above you, you will get a carbon offset tax credit for helping the trees to grow faster. Use your body to create 'biofuels' and you can get an even bigger credit.

Hey Barry, get back and do some more work on the economy, which I think you also said you were serious about.

Ixnay on the burial credit.

obama will in all likelihood tax your estate to cover a “disposal fee” to allow the burial of the last remaining 50 or so pounds of carbon contained in your carcass.

I use to think that most of these decisions would be reversed, challenged and the Supreme Court would put an end to the madness and change our current course back toward what the Constitution actually reads. Now? I wish I could firmly believe in the freedom I was raised believing in

this will crush the economy more than you would know. small businesses will have no chance to compete. Families will be paying out of their butts and their standard of living will go even lower.
The magic muslim negro is crushing the little folks....yes, some of the same morons who voted for this village idiot are going to get screwed by him.

Obviously the premise here is completely false. It’s a cold-blooded murder giving you a choice as to how you wish to suffer death at his hands, by gunshot, or knife wound. You see, he has heart, he has compromised with his victim. Pffft... more dishonesty from Democrats and their liberal media partners.

Sure, they’ll compromise, they’ll offer any deal they have to at whatever price they have to, to get the structure into place.

Carbon trading is the reason he is president. Global warming, global cooling, global whatever you’ve got, whatever floats your boat works for him if at the end of the day he gets his structure. You have to have permission to increase your carbon footprint which means you have to have permission to breathe. And then you have to buy an offset from the Exchange he helped establish. Which means once this is in place he gets veto power over everything, since everything can be construed to affect your “carbon footprint”. And then he gets a cut of everything you do since you are obliged to buy an offset from his exchange.

Ever wonder what rule by marxist mafiosis looks like? Pass this law and we all get to find out.

“Obama“very clear about putting a price on carbon” Everyone must pay!”

It’s very clear the Obama Presidency is and has been about Carbon, Cap & Trade, all along as it means to him personally, and the criminal organization behind him the control of Trillions of dollars via the CCX, and ECX that they can manipulate at will.

They have to be stopped cold. We aren’t slaves for their purpose, and abuse.

Obama made an “effective argument that polluters should pay.”

Nothing proceeds without the labels in place - denier, polluter.

Then comes the legal definitions of these terms in statutes.

Then comes the court's presumption that the terms apply if the government chooses to attack you.

Then your defense is declared "frivolous" because you're denying your precrime polluter status.

Then you are declared in contempt of court, jailed, fined, and have your assets seized.

And they never have to prove a thing, or even invoke their carbon pollution "law."

It's an administrative murder machine - they put liberal hysteria in one end, and a gulag comes out the other.

And the open secret is it does not matter in the least what the hysteria is about - absolutely anything will do to feed the collectivist "legal" mechanism.

It's too easy!!!

In Australia the conservatives stopped this bs cold. I hope in this country we actually have an opposition party that is ready to do the same and not compromise or “reach across the aisle” to burden us and future generations with more tax and control schemes. Globull warming is a hoax, why are they even still talking about this?

They do not care. Most of them are so lazy and have been fed jealousy for their whole lives they do not mind if everyone is as poor as they are.

They would rather see everyone poor than someone making it and they do not have the ability to overcome their laziness.

I don’t remember who it was (Sunstein? Emanuel?), but one of 0bama’s ‘czars’ advocated liquifying dead bodies. He specifically mentioned ‘green.’ I was horrified. This is on video, but I can’t find it right now.

Turns out this is a ‘green’ thing:

How can you compromise on a fantasy? A lie? A fraud?

I told a lib friend this was still in the works and he scoffed at me saying it would never happen. BS. That and based on the recommendation of the Biden committee, I bet a seizure of our 401k assets is in the finance bill.

I would bet that unionized companies will be exempt from carbon taxes, and union members will be exempt from carbon taxes on their homes.

Bank on it.

Pass this law and we all get to find out

It doesn't matter if it passes or not. Ask Texas if their permit for the Corpus Christi refinery has been approved yet. No? EPA is sitting on it for another 45 day period (maximum they are allowed), then rejecting it with another technicality? The Senate already voted to allow cap and tax by EPA fiat, no new laws are needed.

We do, all 40 republicans voted for stopping the EPA plus (IIRC) 6 democrats. But the measure failed and the EPA now does cap and tax, no new law needed.

Judd Gregg said he might be willing to look at a scaled back Cap and Tax. But even if they just go with an energy bill the House has a cap and tax provision in theirs. What happens in conference?

If you ask me gridlock is good, we don't need anymore democrat legislation this year.
