If you think that the cost of energy in this country is too high now, you will be longing for the prices you have been paying for energy this past decade once Barack Obama gets his way if we as a country are stupid enough to let him into the Oval Office.

Barack Obama already believes that raising the taxes on the oil companies is going to be the solution to high gas prices. Since when has a business lowered the price of its product or service when the costs of providing that service has gone up?

Now comes word that Obama wants to “bankrupt” the Coal Industry. The following is an excerpt of audio recently uncovered from a January interview with the San Francisco Chronicle:

“I was the first to call for a 100 percent auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter,” Obama continued. “That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”

I’m sorry but only a complete and total idiot would want to increase taxes, especially increase taxes on energy, and only a complete idiot would actually want to elect a President who openly admits that he plans on doing this.

If Obama gets his way it will cost you more to heat your home, cost you more to use the electricity in your home and cost you even more to fill up your gas tank. If Obama gets his way it will cost businesses more to produce the products they sell, cost businesses more to transport the products they sell, thus causing the price of those goods to go up — and hurting the little people that Barack Obama claims to be their to provide hope and change for.
