    According to the EPA it will cost each of us from $79.00 to $150.00 a month more than we pay now and it has everything to do with global warming ,not energy, to my knowledge.

    "Never has a mission statement fit an administration as perfectly as Rahm Emanuel's 'never allow a crisis to go to waste.' Climate change policy is important, but first things first," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, describing the energy bill as a tax on everyone that would "do nothing" to stop the leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico."

    "Somehow he thinks he can use the tragedy in the Gulf as a reason to pass cap-and-trade," said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla. "There is no relationship between the oil spill and cap-and-trade."

    Obama took this opportunity to promote his political movement. "Never let a crisis go to waste."-- Karl Marx

    I read that amount was per year, not per month.

    Either way, it's completely unnecessary.

    You have made a number of claims without a single referance to back them up. EPA has a site on Cap and Trade, I failed to find your figures. So why don't you give us a site where they say this?

    Neccessary, but not enough. But you will find that out soon enough.

    Why would Obama and the Democrats propose a market-based approach to control pollution, everyone knows he/they are socialists, or is it communists, or was it fascists?
