    Please write and let your Representatives know how you feel on this bill, I continue to write and call not sure it has any effect however we must try,the cap and trade bill will be further loss of jobs and increase cost not sure how much more average Joe can take, this administration seems determine to turn America into a third world country, importing more and more people,outsourcing,loss of manufacturing and rationing health care, sure sounds and looks third world to me.:mad:

    If you thought crap was bad now wait and see what this will do to your pocket book.:mad:
    The coal industry is up in arms over this bill! It has the potential to cripple their industry beyond rebound.
    What it will eventually do the the oil & gas industry is questionable.
    Being a mineral owner I've spoke with several in the know and they say as far as the natural gas side it's a + but on the oil side it's bad news.
    These folks in DC want to look out for the future? Well stop spending money and burying my great grand kids in debit!
    This world has gone through many changes and global warming is IMO and that of many scientist is BS!
    Oh crap now I'm pissed off again!
    Need to go fondle a hand gun and calm down!

    Honestly I hope everyone gets pissed,this country is changing fast and not for the good, we simply are squeezing the middle class out and this administration wants to be in control of what, when and where you do anything, total control simply that is what it's all about.

    Fortunately, my elected representatives feel just like I do on this matter. Unfortunately, they are in the minority. Unless we make enough noise to sway some Southern-state Democrats we're going to get this abomination jammed down our throats.

    yea i just heard about this, this morning on wbap, in 2035 the avg price each household is going to pay on this tax is 6800 dollars, not the 175 dollars that pelosi says, there are 3 parts to the bill, and she conveniently left lots of it out...


    not to mention the bill is 1201 pages long, between them drafting these long bills and hiring speed readers, they (dems) are doing all they can to ruin this country for what they see fit....

    That's not that bad.....as long as they can guarantee the average household has an income of $750k +.

    I don't know that I can remember a time when "we the people" needed to be be on the asses of our elected officials as much as we need to be now.

    Agree, we need the America youth to wake up to the facts this government intends to in debt them for the rest of their lives, personally our government appears out of control more then anytime I can remember in my life and sad to say it appears so with both parties.

    What it will eventually do the the oil & gas industry is questionable.

    From someone I know that's in a position to know about stuff like this: Oil companies are already talking about moving their refining operations out of the US if this becomes law.

    So much for "energy independence" promised by those idiots pushing this bill.

    BTW: it passed the House already, so don't bother writing your Reps. Send letters to our Senators. U.S. Senate: Senators Home
