Obama said the average American would have to pay the cost of a postage stamp per day. Hmm, 44 cents times 365 is $160.60. It's great to ask Americans to pay more taxes at a time when what they need to be doing is spending money (and something tells me it's going to cost more than Barry says it will, so that's probably a low estimate).
"It is paid for by the polluters who currently emit dangerous carbon emissions," Obama said. "It provides assistance to businesses and families as they make the gradual transition to clean energy technologies."
Ohhhh, those eeeeeevil, nasty polluters! People who take advantage of the fact that we live in the 21st century and have the luxury of electricity and cars and air conditioning and so on and so forth.
Wow, 1,000 permanent jobs! In an economy where 1.5 MILLION people were unemployed in May. And what happens to the 2,000 who won't have a job after that solar plant is built?
Let's just hope the Senate says Nay.
