    Face it......Doubling utility bills based upon a myth is never going to fly with the people who are going to be paying them.

    Obama's whole agenda is failing as poll numbers fall and elections come up. There is no reason the Dums couldn't have passed the whole enchilada here. But people are worried about whether they will have a job next week, not whether the temperature will be .5degrees warmer 50 years from now.

    I have an idea that it will be after the next election, at a minimum. They have a lot on their plate with the debt rising as it is without going into the cap and tax crap.

    Why tax production when you can tax consumption?

    More consumers vote than do producers.

    Y'all.

    I hate these damn Southern taxes they keep putting on us and trying to add to. Why not have some Yankee taxes? Tax heating oil or subway fares or something yankees use but not Southerners.

    Hell, we have been sending you Southerners welfare checks for a couple of generations. When you guys start putting more money into the Federal coffers than you take out, then complain. Until then, you are just a bunch of parasites living off the rest of us that work for a living.

    If the welfare actually worked, they wouldn't need to keep sending it.

    These Fabians just keep getting goofier and goofier. :lol:

    Stop using facts, you are confusing them.
