Well, the Democrats are preparing to pass a new tax today in order to push the green environmental agenda. The promise of NOT taxing the public at large is no longer important now that the Dems control everything. Does anyone remember Old Man Bush when he said, "Read my lips. No new taxes!" Well, now the Republicans should blast back with commercials showing public speeches by each Democrat stating no new taxes on the middle and lower classes. This passage stands to raise taxes on gas, coal, and all fossil fuels which are used by nearly everything. While technology does exist to generate energy in "green technology", the implementation of these things on a large scale is costly, requires time to construct and training to maintain, and is still improving at rates that would question whether this is the time to jump in. In detail, the bill would do the following:

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 percent
Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent
Raise an average family's annual energy bill by $1,500 annually
Increase the federal debt by 26 percent, which is $29,150 per person

I beseech you, contact your government representatives and tell them HR 2454 must not pass.
