Reuters reports that the White House, in an attempt to pave way for the public’s acceptance of the proposed cap and trade bill, ramped up it’s propaganda claiming consumer’s wallets will be minimally affected.

heating oil and other bills for average families will rise $114 in 2020 and $288 in 2030, according to the Energy Information Administration, the country’s top energy forecaster.

However, the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO), which I trust more than the EPA or EIG, states the following:

At a hearing on Capitol Hill, the Government Accountability Office, an arm of Congress, concluded that “consumers will bear most of the costs of a cap and trade system” as companies pass along their increased energy costs.

Are there any Democrats speaking out against the cap and trade legislation? Here’s what a House member from AR has to say:

Democrat Blanche Lincoln drove that point home during the hearing, calling the House-passed bill “deeply flawed” and one that would hurt rural areas like her home state of Arkansas.

Then you get more of the propaganda from rabid liberal John Kerry.  He claims that there’s an effort to scare the public by overestimating the cost to taxpayers and that if the cap and trade bill does not pass, the EPA will will enact carbon regulations that will be more punishing to companies.

So, the bottom-line is, at this point, no one knows the result will be if this onerous legislation is enacted.  If they can’t scare the taxpayer into accepting it, then they will just bypass them and threaten industry until they cave in.  Either way, we all lose with this cap and trade bill.
