Skip to comments.Your Electricity Bill is About to Necessarily Skyrocket
Posted on 06/10/2012 6:59:56 PM PDT by netmilsmom
In January of 2008, then Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama, talking about his energy plan, told the San Francisco Chronicle, When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket He wasnt kidding.
While he was talking about his cap and trade plan, something that went nowhere in Congress, even when Democrats controlled it with a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, his objective of changing how we generate electricity hasnt changed. Neither has his lack of concern for the cost to consumers.
President Obama hates coal because he has deemed it too dirty. Its also the largest generator of electricity in this country. Were there a cheaper, easier (and even cleaner) source of electricity generation the market would have embraced it because thats how markets work. But there isnt, at least not yet.

We live in Phoenix!
That’s right. We cannot allow the Treasonous low life, and his minions to continue efforts to destroy this Nation.
“Obama hates coal” my foot. It’s America he hates.
There’s waaaay too much deemin’ goin’ on......
I’m beginning to think that owebama doesn’t have any original thoughts of his own.
He hates what he is advised to hate.
America “necessarily” needs to get rid of Obama, before he destroys America.
He wants the people to return to nature, just like that nice Cambodian fellow.
“President Obama hates coal...”
Obama primarily wants to destroy America, but has anyone looked at his ties to Indonesian coal?
“(Clinton) signed the Executive Order designating 1.7 million acres of land in southwest Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (Kaiparowitz Plateau),...”
“Besides the Kaiparowitz Plateau, there are only two other known locations in the world where comparable coal is found in sufficient quantities to make mining it worthwhile.”
“...the coal fields of South Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia.”
“Democrats attempted to downplay the allegations of impropriety. Even if the Clinton campaign and the Party did receive illegal contribution- which is denied -what, they demanded, had Clinton done for Lippo Group, the Riadys, or Indonesia that really affects this country adversely?”
Was Lolo Soetoro connected with the Lippo Group, or is Obama just picking up where Clinton left off?
Follow the money, connect the dots...
Dark Age II. Obama’s Revenge.
The remaining Obama stickers on the backs of cars are coming off here - the utility has asked for 7% this year. No doubt, the first of many 7% years, whether or not the Green Genius is re-elected. The damage has been done.
PS: I would not advise anyone with an Obama bumper sticker to travel east of Paris, Ky. Or, on second thought, go right ahead! It’s beautiful coal country there. Really.
“even when the boy is gone we’ll still have to deal with the EPA that made it happen...”
I have screen shots of Romney’s website and I am going to hold him to it. He has two years. Otherwise, he will be facing a hostile Congress...
...of Tea Party members.
“what does he say about the EPA???”
I am liking what I read, but, we shall see.
I am not in favor of eliminating the EPA, because without it, this place would look like post-Soviet Russia by now, maybe worse. On the other hand, we wouldn’t have any Social Security problem because the average life expectancy would be 60!
It needs to be reigned in and scaled back (very significantly) to its original mission.
Obama loves the fact that Americans are fools.
WHY? He has a radical leftist background. Does that explain all of his attacks against our country?
But what about LIbya? What about Arab Spring? Egypt is going to be controlled by Muslim Brotherhood. OBama has one of these terrorists in the White House with him.
How about Iraq? And Syria?
Will you finally figure out WHO Obama is working for when Iran, Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Syria attack Israel? Most Americans couldn't figure it out if Obama was on the evening news on a prayer rug facing Mecca.
“He wants the people to return to nature...]
Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan had much to say on subject of a return to nature.
Quite a hell I can assure you.
No, no; it’s sunshine and bunnies and rainbow-pooping unicorns. Disney told me so.
I hope everybody can read this article.
The EPA has done nothing but lower our standard of living. Private property rights are the key to preserving the environment. Look at the worst environmental disasters and they are always caused or abetted by government.
The vast majority of the U.S.A. will not willingly live in filth and trash. Never has.
Only the very young and ignorant would make that assertion. Too many of those also believe that history didn't exist until they were born, so no one remembers what it was like decades before the EPA or the EQA. Give me a choice of pre or post EPA, I'll take "pre" every time. The country would be better for it.
I saw the evolution of the "environmental" gestapo and the insatiable hunger for more power and control over others' lives. The tens of trillions$ wasted can never be recovered. Plus, the major infrastructure created generations before the EPA which benefits tens of millions of US residents would literally not be "allowed" today.
Ponder this. America is very rich in natural resources, coal being a major one. It seems reasonable to think if someone wanted to be dictator, that someone might want to eventually funnel the riches inherent in those resources into his own pockets. Just think of the power in the world he would have with such a treasure. He would definitely not want any of that treasure to be used before gaining full control of it. As I think of past world history, my musings on the state of our own nation do not comfort. Only insane, drug and alcohol infested people would want the cost of electricity to skyrocket in this nation. The “revolutionaries” among us must be defeated.
Most people don't have a clue what its original mission was.
While he rants about helping the middleclass in every lying speech he really means decimating the middleclass. They want us poor and dependent on them. If Romney doesnot clean out ALL of the agencies and I mean ALL, the cancer will be allowed to survive for another day.
” even when the boy is gone we’ll still have to deal with the EPA that made it happen... “
The House of Representatives controls the purse. The Republicans control the house. An agency with no funds can do no ill and cannot enforce regulations issued in the past. The EPA does its dirty work because Mr. Boehner and the Republican party choose to fund it today. There is no need to wait for a change in the White House to reign in the agency.
Ask yourself if Nancy Pelosi were Speaker of the House under a Republican president, and the Democrats wanted an agency to stop doing something, would the House Democrats cut off funding to exert leverage on policy? The answer is obvious — yes. Now ask why the Republicans have done nothing in the nearly two years they’ve controlled the house to limit the actions of rogue agencies by eliminating funding? The answer - either they really agree with the actions of the agency or they are being blackmailed or they abhor conflict or they have lousy leadership.
Power is meaningless if you don’t use it.
