This supine press release for the next stage in Barack Obama’s Impoverish America Program reveals how the President expects us to trust him now matter what outrageous statement he makes and how many times he has lied to us in the past.
President Barack Obama will propose cutting greenhouse-gas emissions from the nation’s power plants by an average of 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, according to people briefed on the plans.
The proposal, scheduled to be unveiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tomorrow morning, represents one of the boldest steps the U.S. has taken to fight global warming — and a political gamble.
Obama signaled both the importance of the rule to his legacy on environmental protection and the bruising fight ahead by joining a conference call today with congressional Democrats, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and White House counselor John Podesta to rally support.
According to two people who listened to the call, Obama dismissed complaints that the rule will hurt the economy by driving up electricity prices, and told the Democrats listening: “Please go on offense” to promote the measure rather than responding to criticisms.
He said that rather than having an adverse effect on the economy – as critics say – his new rule limiting carbon pollution will boost the economy by $43 billion to $74 billion, according to the people.
McCarthy told the lawmakers that the rule will only lead to minimal cost increases for consumers in some areas and families could end up saving money due to efficiency gains, one participant on the call said. She also stressed that states will be able to design their own approaches to meet the targets, the source said.
Only minimal cost increases? Areas and families could end up saving money?
I can’t imagine how the Administration could say more loudly and more plainly: WE THINK YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ARE IDIOTS WHO WILL SWALLOW AND THANK US FOR ANY EXCREMENT SANDWICH WE SHOVE DOWN YOUR THROAT, EVEN IF WE LEAVE OUT THE BREAD.
Not only are these people the same ones who lied about Obamacare being affordable and allowing us to keep our plans and doctors, these are also the people who brought us the Solyndra bankruptcy. They know nothing about how to predict and plan energy production in the future.
The only good thing about this plan is that it has a fifteen year timeline. We can hope it will be repealed before it does too much damage.
