    According to Boehner's office, the $3,100 number is based on a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) study released earlier this year that examined cap-and-trade legislation from 2007. Republicans believe the new legislation for 2009, in its final form, will be similar to the 2007 bill.

    “We took MIT’s own estimate of a key cap-and-trade bill from the 110th Congress (S. 309), cosponsored by then-Senator Obama, that said S. 309 would generate $366 billion in revenues in 2015,” Boehner's office told CNSNews.com. “We took MIT’s own number – $366 billion – and divided that by the number of U.S. households. … Using this formula, you get roughly $3,000 per household.”



    So let me get this right... the Obama administration realizes they need to get more money to fund their spending spree... and if the American people catch on to what they are doing and realize how much this is going to cost them they will move that cost to corporations who will have to buy carbon permits from the government?????

    And if it doesn't get passed on to the corporations we all know that the bottom 3rd of wage earning households are not going to have to pay for this.... So the most successful in this country will be paying even more....

    How in the hell is this going to create jobs in this country???? Instead of making it easier to do business here in the states these guys are going to force more companies to move oversees... What the hell is wrong with these people???????

    Yet Obama flies around the country emitting all kinds of CO2.... You libs should be pissed at Obama for not walking the talk! But are you...hell no :cuckoo:
