Truth is the beginning of wisdom…

  • Reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by $9.6 trillion.

  • Destroy an average of 1-3 million jobs, every year.

  • Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation.

  • Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74%.

  • Raise residential natural gas prices by 55%.

  • Raise an average family’s annual energy bill by $1,500 annually.

  • Increase the federal debt by 26%, which is $29,150 per person.

    Why would these congressmen support a bill that drives up the cost of energy and destroy jobs during a recession?

    Notice they all serve on different committees. We all know there are dozens of different committees in the House. But what was promised to them for voting yea. Could they have been promised more influence in each of the positions? Why did these individuals vote against the wishes of the very people who put them in office? Some of that has been found in the 300 pages of amendments that was distributed in the wee hours of the morning that once again no one read before they voted.

    The final vote was 219 yeas and 212 nays. Had these “Elite Eight” voted according to their constituents wishes vs. their own potential political gain, the vote would have been 211 yeas and 220 nays. But we didn’t need all 8 to vote correctly. We only needed 4. If only 4 had voted nay, the final tally would have been 215 yeas and 216 nays.

    Speaker Pelosi stated to the House before the vote was cast, “… just remember these four words for what this legislation means: jobs, jobs, jobs, and jobs. Let’s vote for jobs.” She forgot to finish each phrase, in China, in China, in China, in China. Obviously, she and all who voted to pass this legislation didn’t think very far into the future or even use common sense. Not only will the American people be taxed so much they will feel “out of business”, but our major employers will be “moving out their business” to countries that don’t even care about clean air, let alone tax upon it. It will have nothing to do about anti-patriotism. It will simply be a financial business decision.

    We are fed-up with spineless, gutless Progressives and Liberals like this. They need to be removed from office and replaced with true Conservatives. Call them and tell them.
