Sparky’s Cap And Trade Plan Equivalent To Raising Taxes 15%

I’m sure this is just some sort of raaaaacist posturing by a right wingnut rethuglican group trying to distract from the issues that Americans care abo…….wait, what?

The Obama administration has privately concluded[1] that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent.

A previously unreleased analysis prepared by the U.S. Department of Treasury says the total in new taxes would be between $100 billion to $200 billion a year. At the upper end of the administration’s estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year.

The documents (PDF[2]) were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute[3] and released on Tuesday.

Well, it is still raaaaacist for filing the FOIA request, and for mentioning it in an article at CBS. Of course, cBS tries to cover for President Sparky, but, Obama’s own numbers speak for themselves.

Speaking of raaaaacism[4],

Twelve percent (12%) of voters nationwide believe that most opponents of President Obama’s health care reform plan are racist. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of voters disagree, and 21% are not sure.

Shockingly, the majority of those who believe opponents of President Neophytes health system reform plan (though, he doesn’t actually have one) are raaaaacists vote Democrat.

Meanwhile, George W. Obama is planning on weaking the Copenhagen climate alarmist talks[5]. Oh, wait, it was Bill Clinton who refused to sign Kyoto after the Democrat dominated Senate voted 95-0 against joining.

Global Warming Could Cool N. America in a Few Decades?[6]

Global warming[7] could actually chill down North America[8] within just a few decades, according to a new study that says a sudden cooling event gripped the region about 8,300 years ago.

Unfortunately, they are serious.
