    House “Cap & Trade” Bill Final, Call Your Senator Now

    According to a post on the Daily Paul website, C-SPAN was incorrect when it stated that House members had until July 2nd to change their vote on HR 2454, also known as the American Clean Energy and Security Act. A contributor to the site called Ron Paul’s office to confirm the deadline and was told the vote was final — once the House gavels the vote, it is final.

    Energy needs to be dedicated to the version now working its way through the Senate. 100 Senators need to be contacted before July 4th and told in no uncertain terms that they must not vote for this bill.

    The so-called “cap and trade” bill will shut down the economy and introduce serfdom. “Limiting the amount of CO2 will do nothing to help make the planet less warm, make us energy independent or create millions of jobs. It will on the other hand destroy whatever is left of our industry here in the North American Union by leaving companies no choice but to move offshore. Some of the biggest oil reserves in the world are here in North America, yet we rely on foreign oil. The elites indirectly control every facet our life,” explains Zachary T Baker for Infowars.

    Call your senator now!

    In addition to the already reported horrors of the Cap and Tax bill, please consider what the massive increase in energy and gasoline prices will do to your local governments. Imagine what a doubling of electricity rates will do to the cost of running government buildings. Can you think how local communities will be able to pay for gasoline to run their school bus fleets? Our county just raised our property tax rate by 17.5 cents to cover the shortfalls in sales tax revenue. What will they have to raise local taxes to in order to pay for cap and Tax? Please mention this when you call your senators.
