    The Democrats couldn't even wait 24 hours before they proposed a new tax that effects everyone.

    A new carbon tax.

    Here's the good news. As long as you don't use fossil-fuels you can avoid the new tax. This means no gasoline, natural gas, coal, or ethanol.

    So there's good news after all.

    The House is controlled by the Republicans, it simply won't happen. What will happen is Obama will attempt to use the EPA to shut down coal and natural gas. If someone does not sue his ass he will succeed in destroying the Coal industry and causing prices in 60 percent of this Country to sky rocket.

    Keep telling yourself that.

    Remember when they said Obamacare would be ruled unconstitutional?

    The voters have spoken. If we now get various new or increased taxes that's the way it goes. Elections, as they say, have consequences.

    For some of us they'll have little to no financial impact in our day to day lives. For others, they'll feel it in varying degrees based on their financial circumstances. And if enough folks get pissed off about paying more in taxes they can take it out on the culprits at the ballot box.

    Everyone will be effected.

    If you use fossil-fuels expect to see massive increases.

    Food, gas, electricity, everything will go up.

    Why?

    Because in all of their wisdom the greedy American electorate voted to keep in power a party that believes in control of the population through bigger government. Bigger government costs more. That means more money gets printed, costs of goods and services go up due to federal, state, and local surcharges hidden in our bills. Our cell phone bills, our utility bills, our bank accounts, our mortgages.

    You wanted it, you got it, America.

    It goes beyond Obama and Political Parties. If you do research on who controls both parties you'll see why no matter WHO we elect, we get the same policies implemented.
